    I love this and first look from one of my wedding customers they loved it also. I love t because it can turn a run of the mill and dare I say drab, boring even blurred photo look amazing. Don’t use it if you are wanting to keep all features but if you are looking for a contrasty and believe it or not cartoon like image this is a killer. I intend to create a full wedding album in cartoon and comic book style for display. The way the colours and features pop is really eye-catching. Don’t know what else to say except give it a go – and the price is a snip.

    I bought this and was having a few problems with the installation. So I emailed Photobacks and they replied less than 24 hours later. Very happy with the customer support!

    LOVE Photobacks Cartoon! I can’t stop playing with it! I’ve always tried to create such images in Photoshop myself, but not only is it time consuming, the results are never great. And even if I get a great result, I’d have to try and repeat the steps on another photo and it never seems to work just right. Cartoon takes away all my stress! A simply click and I’ve got an amazing cartoon. I love the speech bubbles, the different options. It’s great! An easy purchase! THANK YOU Photobacks!

    I’ve seen softwares like this before (and probably purchased a few I don’t use), but Photobacks has figured this out. The results are what you want. The results look like cartoons, comics, prints, drawings, etc. This isn’t just blurring the image and enhancing the edges, which looks terrible…this is totally different and so much better. Really happy with this purchase.

    Wonderful! I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along. So glad I found this. Good to note that I have Photoshop CC and Elements 14, as I use each for different reasons. I’ve now installed Cartoon in both CC and Elements 14 and it works great!

    Loving Cartoon. I’m getting amazing results that I couldn’t get on my own playing in Photoshop. The value is here and I recommend this product.

    Been waiting to purchase and finally pulled the trigger. it’s awesome. I saw on Facebook that the install for CC was updated. Worked perfectly. Installed in seconds with one-click. Very slick plug-in this is. Worth every penny. Shouldn’t have waited to purchase, but glad i finally got it.

    Just what I was looking for! It’s awesome! Used it for an engagement shoot and the couple LOVED it! Lots of fun. Needed help installing in CS6, but it was my fault, so Photobacks guy was great help! You can tell they love the product too! 🙂

    Having a lot of fun with this one. I didn’t know what to expect because any photo can give you differenct results, but it’s great. Great fun and my photos turn out great! Everything loves them. In a few seconds, I can create a cartoon image, share it online and great a lot of “Likes!” Very good and well worth the money.
