    Ok my wife is writing a childrens book. I am doing the photography part and she is doing the writing... part. I am looking for some good software to convert my digital pictures to sorta like cartoon characters, but still look like real kids. There is a post with a pic that has exactly what I am looking for, I PM'd the fella he is from the UK, I have not heard from him yet. I dont mind paying for software as she is going to write several books down the road. Thanks, Mike

    Aperture doesn't appear to have a plugin. Your best bet is to research the links provided and see if there is a stand alone application or not. If not, photoshop elements may be a very good addition to your software lineup.

    Have you heard of Comic Life?

    Hi,
    I have used Comic life (http://plasq.com)for several Class projects. Every time I present the project I have received great results. You can import, or cut and paste any graphics of photos. The app is fully integrated into the Mac OS so you have the option of pulling in pics from iPhoto or any location in the finder. Great fun and easy to use, Just what you described needing to do. A PLUS; Great price, free trial download.
    Have Fun...

    Your link is broken. At least for me.

    You can do this with Live Trace in Illustrator. You have a number of settings to choose from photo realistic to line drawings. You have to edit and color the result, but there is a Live Paint feature that simplifies this.

    If that Brit you wanted to contact posted images of Michael Jackson, he may not be helpful. His technique received a rude reception in the Design and Graphics forum. That happens a lot and I don't post there anymore.
