The Toolbox: Cartoon Photo Effect

The Toolbox is going to be a series of articles in which we go one by one discussing the tools available in iPiccy Photo Editor. We’ll talk about the strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate times to use these tools. Last time we talked about the Frames Tab, but today we’re talking about the Cartoon Photo Effect.

iPiccy Photo Editor provides numerous different methods for achieving different cartoon photo effects. However, by and large you’ll find them as a part of our larger collection of effects, and the one we’ll most likely be using is listed as “Cartoonizer”. When talking about cartoon photo effects, it is easy to write them off as childish and immature.

iPiccy is here to tell you that doesn’t necessarily have to the case, nor is it always a bad thing. From time to time, there is completely nothing wrong at all with having a little fun with your photos, and making them quirky, eccentric, or a little crazy. There is also the possibility that it happens to be the perfect effect to immortalize your favorite memories.
