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:

  1. 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;
  2. 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)
