Comic Book Effect in Photoshop
Emulate Print Techniques in Photoshop – Part 5
Using Smart Objects and the Filter Gallery to Create a Comic Book Effect
This is the fifth video in the series on emulating traditional print techniques using photographs in Photoshop.
The 1950s American comic book effect is pretty difficult to emulate in Photoshop.
This technique is a mere appromixation but it can sometimes give good results when used with the right image.
The challenge we face is to bring out the detail from a photograph, and also to trace out the key contours inside the image.
The image created in the UFO hoax video was created especially to demonstrate this effect, both for the subject matter and the composition.
