Using IMAGE MAGICK
To create 'Pop-art' using my method, you will need your graphic, and 2 contrasting color blanks of your choice. Make your blanks ahead of time. You can size them to the size of your graphic, or keep them small, and tile them across your image. NOTE: The second layer needs to be a very dark color, for good contrast!
Here are a few blanks for you to use, if you want to test the method.
Take your graphic to I.M.
Go to Effects>Threshold. Erase the parameters in the box.
Enter the parameters you desire...ie....12345....23456....34567, etc. (I used 23456 on this one.)
Go to Composite. Comp your first (lighter) color blank on your image, using "Multiply." Here is example, after first layer is comped.
Go back to Composite. Comp your second color blank (darker color) on your image, using "Exclusion." Here is example of my finished Pop-Art. Notice that your first color blank changed in intensity, but your second color blank remained the same.
That's all there is to it...but play...experiment! Experiment with your choices of "threshold." This is the same image, using "white threshold," with setting of 23456. Notice you can still see details of her neck outline, compared to the earlier one.
Here's an example, using "Newsphoto," and here's one using "Comicstrip."
Here are some examples before and after applying the technique.
