With AKVIS Neon you can not only make glow effects, but also transform your photos into comic book style drawings.
For this example we need an image editor to apply various settings of the Neon effect to different layers and change a blend mode to mix results.
Step 1. Open a photo in your image editor and create a copy of the base layer (in Photoshop choose: Layer -> Duplicate Layer).
Step 2. Call the AKVIS Neon plugin for the top layer. Adjust the effect parameters. To achieve the drawing effect activate both Inversion check-boxes - dark lines will appear along the contours, and this will give an image a desired look.
Step 3. Start processing and apply the result .
Step 4. Switch to the lower background layer and use the Artistic -> Cutout filter with parameters 3/5/1 to simplify color areas.
Step 5. Apply the AKVIS Neon plugin to slightly blur the contours and add a glow effect.
Step 6. Apply the result .
Step 7. Change the blend mode of the top layer to Darken, and the poster is ready!
