How to make an image composed of only a few colors?


Recommended Posts

I wanted to make an image automatically composed of a few colors. No serious detail. I tried making the effect by mixing two effects together, Posterize and Contrast, but it didn't turn out at all how I wanted it.

Still, I attached it to this post. Anyways, any help?

An image like that is probably not made all at once. I would put each color on its own layer and compose it that way.

Then can you show me a way how, if you know?

 

By the way, here's the original image:

Kitty,

 

1. Open the image.

 

2. Go to Adjustments > Posterize  or use the keyboard combination Ctrl + Shift + P

 

3. Make sure the Linked option is checked.

 

4. Reduce the number of colors to 3 (i.e. the sliders value).

 

Result:

That's what I did first time (except I edited brightness and contrast), but when I mean few, I mean it's literal meaning, as in 3 to 4 colors.
