My goal was to create a Photoshop script that would automatically turn a photo into a comic-like illustration. I failed. I was able to create a script that got the process started. But to get what I wanted I had to do most of it by hand. Which may be a good thing for a couple of reasons:
- That last thing the world needs right now is another app or plug-in that turns photos into so-so comics. There are plenty of those;
- This means that my human skills are still valuable. At least to me.
If you are interested: I took the original photo at a sock hop in my daughter’s elementary school (May of 2000)
