How to Cartoonize a Picture in GIMP


GIMP is a versatile graphics editing software with powerful built-in image editing scripts that are capable of transforming your pictures in many ways. Some of the software's most used capabilities include photo enhancement, digital retouching, multiple file format integration, RAW image handling and much more. Beyond standard photo editing solutions, GIMP provides custom scripts to manipulate the look of pictures. GIMP allows you cartoonize your pictures, making the subject of the pictures appear as an animation. The cartoon script comes pre-installed, along with a bevy of other artistic and enhancement plug-ins.

  • Select "File" followed by "Open" from the main GIMP window. Select the image to be edited and click "OK."

  • Select "Filters" followed by "Artistic" and "Cartoon."

  • Adjust the "Mask Radius" and "Percent Black" sliders to increase or decrease the cartoon effect. The "Percent Black" slider increases the intensity of the black lines, while the "Mask Radius" slider smooths the image and removes background noise. Preview the output image in the preview box, and then click "OK."

  • Navigate to "File" followed by "Save As" at the main GIMP window. Name the file, select its destination location and click "Save."
