One of my nieces got married recently, and I created this “cartoonized” image from a wedding photo using Gimp. It probably took about ten steps in this case, but I had to significantly reduce the light coming in the large window behind them; pump up the color a lot; apply several “artistic” filters to it (Van Gogh and Oilify, several times each); and then kept applying different levels of the “cartoon” effect. I didn’t really want a cartoon image, but I couldn’t get the Oilify image to look the way I wanted in the time allotted, so I applied the Cartoon filter, and I was happier with it.
