You might be able to achieve this using filters, but I would actually consider redrawing the photo entirely using Illustrator a similar vector tool. You can do this using the Pen Tool. To make things easier, start by pasting the photo you want to convert, and maybe turning it into B&W and increasing the contrast. That will give you a nice base to work ...

I found a quickish method! You had almost all of the workflow, and the 'cutout' part that you had, is what I was missing when trying at first. Starting with this image, because I couldn't find the one you're using: The longest part for me was masking out the background. You may also need to add a Black & White adjustment layer after step 2 if you're ...

It's called posterization (as it was a technique to allow for making posters easier via screen printing, block printing, or lithography). The most common ways to achieve it: use the 'posterize' filter in your raster image editor of choice (photoshop, pixelmator, GIMP, etc.) use a vector tracing tool (as previously mentioned)

The first image looks like a direct Live Trace in Illustrator. In order to get better results you can boost the contrast of the image before live tracing it and after that as well. This is how the results look like: It's a good idea to clean some important curves and lines, so that they don't look so random.

Well, you're on the right track. Here's my shot: Settings: The difference is in the details though and getting that perfect emboss/glow is the tricky part. You might try dragging it through After Effects and using glow or perhaps simply pushing the contrast with curves in Photoshop. Oh, and don't forget the noise (Filter > Noise).

Here is my shot I have used Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, Bevel and Emboss, Gradient Overlay and Satin Screenshots of used effects Drop Shadow : [ Blend_Mode:multiply,100%,#000000 ] [ Angle:120, Global_Light:No ] [ 4px:0%:1px ] [ Contour:Defaults/CoveDeep ] [Noise: 0% ] Inner Shadow : [ ...

Ramp the contrast up with curves. Instructions: Select your image and press Ctrl-M. This will bring up the curves dialog. Move the top point left and the bottom point right until your image becomes black and white. (that rhymes!)

First you'll want to desaturate the image (CMD+SHIFT+U), this removes any color and makes it easier to achieve pure white. With your file open, choose Image->Adjustments->Levels. You'll get this: Now bring the two outer triangles in like this (you'll need to play around with this until you get something you like): You should end up with this!

Generate the lens flare on a separate layer. This way you have full control over the flare size, pozition, color etc.

Difference just in selection method.. at first case you select the whole artboard, at the second you select just a object on a layer (some transparency can be dropped due threshold). The second way is good to get selection exactly like an object. It is handy in many cases. And not so when you want have just a full copy. Btw, you can consider Ctrl / ...

No, some of the modes can under some circumstances be applied to the images channel. But screen is 1- (1-a)(1-b) and can not be replicated without knowing the value of the ubderlying layer beforehand. Which would make using it irrelevant anyway. The way you do this is by difference key where you chose one channel as alpha and then adjust white point to ...
