Since you have a PowerBook, you need to install it, it comes with the pro Macs.

You can do this by installing bundled apps from disc 1 of your restore DVDs.

Graphic Converter can be installed from there.

Not sure if it does the effect I am thinking of but what you may want is something to do edge detection with a posterise filter - that usually works well.

I should note the best way to cartoonise images is do to a lot of the work yourself :flower:

Below is something I just tried with Photoshop's posterise and Accented Edges filter - anything that can offer those kind of filters should be able to get the rough result below.

Photoshop or Illustrator. In CS2 the Live Trace does pretty good conversions.

Hiya,

I'll re upload it today; as it was stored on my sites folder on this Mac here, and I gave it a good clean out a few days ago! Will post a permanent URL in due course.
