Does anyone know of a "Paint" filter for Photoshop?
I am trying to do a bit of stylistic work on photos, and I am trying to get a cartoonish look to them. however, I need it to be smooth and bright with few heavy, black outlines. I know of a "paint" function on a video mixer I once used, but being that I have not the 10 grand to drop for such a piece of equipment, that option is out the window. a good example of what I am looking for is DVShades' LiveToon plugin for Final Cut Pro, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a 3rd party filter or a technique that would replicate this in either GIMP or PhotoShop.
