Step 3: Click on “Import Photo” and select the photo which you wanna cartoon(i advise you to use a simple white background photo for beginners)
Step 4: Click on the layer button again and click on the first layer(the layer that contains the image you want to cartoonize). After clicking a menu should pop…look for Opacity then reduce the opacity bar a little…. You can reduce it to 40-60 depending on the image you are working on.
Step 5: When you are satisfied with the opasity, Then click anywhere outside that box and your image should have a white fade…. Depending on your opacity
Step 6: Click on the pencil icon at the top and pick a pencil…the first pencil is meant for drawing, and the third one is meant for painting.
Step 7: Zoom your image by placing two of your fingers on the part you want to zoom and enlarging the fingers…. Place two fingers on the image to move from one side to another also.
Step 8: Start using your finger to trace the image… Start from the head to the eyes, to the nose and mouth then to the hands and body. Note…. If this is your first time don’t worry it can’t be perfect…while tracing, zoom in to see tiny parts and for more accuracy. While tracing you can check your progress by clicking on the layer button and clicking the eye button on the first layer…this would hide the layer, then click the button again to make the layer visible
Step 9: After you have finished tracing, click on the layer button and increase the opacity of the 1st layer to 100%.

Then fill the part you have selected with the colour picker by clicking on it.Click the eye button again to pick another colour from the image, you can adjust the colour by clicking the colour button and moving the circle inside.
Step 13: After filling the whole parts with there colours then make the first layer visible. Click on the 1st layer, then keep reducing the opacity till you are satisfied with how the image looks…. The more you reduce, the more it looks like a cartoon.
