Cartoonify Photos With The GIMP

If you're looking for a way to make your photos a bit more interesting with cool effects, you can turn them into vector art with previously mentioned photo editor GIMP in just a few simple steps.

Software blog MakeUseOf actually shares two different methods within the GIMP to "cartoonify" your portraits—one involves a built-in cartoonifying tool, and the other involves manually tweaking other settings like Threshold and Value. They also share a method using the Edge Detect feature to create a similar effect on non-portraits (that is, photos of objects and not people). It's a pretty neat tutorial, and if you play around with it enough, you can actually get some pretty cool-looking shots. Hit the link for the detailed instructions.

    The interface of the GIMP is terrible. I find it impossible to use.

    Something like Paint.NET or PaintRibbon is much better:
