I'm looking for a program that will take an ordinary JPEG and make it look like a cartoon, an oil painting, or what have you.

Any siggestions? Does such a program exist?

Or Photoshop itself--but it does much much more and can be a life's learning experience, too.

Graphic Converter will do some of these effects.

GIMP also has "posterize" and "oilify" effects and is free.

Irfanview is free for home use and will do a few things.   No nagging for contributions or spyware, works under Windows or Wine if you are on a Linux system. I don't know about Macs.

Most of my experience is with Photoshop and it does require some experimentation. Given the nature of the task - I would guess it would require a lot of touching-up. Photshop is so rich it has tools to make the latter task easier. IMNSHO.

Yes....well, I 'think' this might do it.

It has many filters and effects to experiment with, including 'watercolor' and 'comic strip' and many types of blurring and such

Try PhotoFiltre (free!)

PhotoFiltre will do 95% of anything Paint Shop Pro will do, and is free....but PSP is quite good! (We have an older version.)

Also check out Corel Painter. I think they are on version 11 now; earlier versions might be free or inexpensive. I have done what you want to do Painter essentials (for Mac, which was bundled with a Wacom tablet I bought, along with Photoshop Elements). Load a jpg image, click a button or two, and hey presto, you've got a Seurat.
