Comic Book Effect Photo Editing Apr 05, 2010

1. We're going to edit a picture of something and turn it into a comic strip image or something that almost resembles the real thing. You can use my picture used in this example if you want to!

2. First you will have to duplicate the original layer (layer - duplicate layer) and after that you should desaturate the duplicated layer so go to (image- adjustments - desaturate).

3. Now duplicate the desaturated layer one more time and go to (filter - stylize - find edges). Make sure you change the blending mode of this layer to soft light! You should have something similar to this picture by now!

4. In this last step you just have to place the original banner in between the 2 new ones, a screenshot of my layer window should be enough for any of you to understand what you have to do! And there you go, a comic book effect explained in a few easy steps can be seen in the second screenshot!
