Best PS technique or plug in for this look?

http://www.vinmag.com/online/media/g...gic-poster.jpg

Looking to recreate this look by using stock photographs. Any guidance is much appreciated.

From the looks of the guy in the centre it's been converted to a vector format.
Colour flattened (not dithered) to about 16, maybe 24, colours in the conversion.

Thanks. The linked image is actually a vintage color plate poster, and I am just trying to replicate that look.

-How would you flatten the colors to 16 or 24?

I'm also looking for some advice on filters or plug-ins to create a convincing illustrative look to photographs. Thanks!

It doesn't exist. There are "simplifiers" but... it doesn't look like an actual illustration.

I don't know for sure whether or not this will do exactly what you want but Filter Forge can do many-many amazing effects.

Take a look at their web site at:

Over at DPReview.com, Retouching forum...

Search on "Illustrated Look" - Chip Springer crafted a tutorial a couple years back that many people really liked.

Topaz Clean may be an option. I second the suggestion for Filter Forge, as it can do literally thousands of effects right out of the box (due to the huge selection of filters uploaded by users).

Danny thanks for mentioning CSpringer. I've had some manips turn out like illustrations but I couldn't recall what I'd done. It' must have been something like his sharpen-blur-sharpen simple technique that you mentioned
