Hello Heather,

 

As far as I know, the plugins of effects work only on one layer. So I think it will have to be done layer by layer. Can you post the posterized image?

 

 

 

Post-Edit: I was thinking of EER method above. :) 

 

Since there are probably several colors in your image it will be faster if you change the Flood Mode to GLOBAL before using the magic wand.

1. Change the Flood Mode to GLOBAL

2. Use the magic wand and click on one of the colors (Red in the example above). Everything that is red will be selected.

3. Press Ctrl+C to copy the selected areas to the clipboard.

4. Add a new layer and press Ctrl + V to paste it.

 

Repeat all the steps for each color. ;)

Holding down the Shift key while making a magic wand selection does the same as setting the Global flood mode. Ref http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/MagicWand.html

 

4. Add a new layer and press Ctrl + V to paste it.

Simpler to paste directly into a new layer with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + V. Ref http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/EditMenu.html
