Anyone know how to do this effect?
I'm trying to get a few people pictures to have this effect, but I can't seem to find figure it out...

1. Desaturate Image (or change to greyscale)
2. Adjust Threshhold of Image (Image / Adjustments / Threshold)


Posterize (use only 2 levels)

3. replace color with blue or whatever other color you want

- it may help to up the contrast before starting this, you'll need an image with strong contrast.

- if there is a background to the face, you will need to erase it first.. otherwise it will blend into the image once you make it two colors.

i used the cutout option with my sig...worked pretty well. don't know if it helps though.

Justin: Thanks! I'm testing it out now, it is difficult to get the exact effect, just have to play with it.

King Luis: Cutout is good, I tried that before but for this project I needed some more unique.

If anyone else has some other ways please post!
