Turn a Photo into Pop Art

Turn a Photo into Pop Art

By Carole Asselin

Learn how to transform a photo into a funky, pop art style image. PaintShop Professional Carole Asselin walks you through the steps of this simple process. You will learn how to change your color photo into a grayscale image, by adjusting Hue/Saturation and Brightness/Contrast, and then applying a Contour effect. The next step is to replace the different gray areas with the colors of your choice, using the Magic wand selection tool and Flood Fill tool.

    I find your tutorials interesting and useful. I have one suggestion, though. Besides the video, could step-by-step written script also be added? I can then print them out and use on other occasions.

    LOVE this!!!!! I just want to add that since I couldn’t see the all the parameters being used for the Flood Fill tool, I had to play around with it until I changed the Match Mode to None. Then it worked perfectly. I always seem to learn more than your tutorials are actually teaching. Thanks so much.
