The second filter in Snap Art's collection, is Comics. Comics is especially unique for graphics artists who need a realistic "comic book" effect to their images but lack the time and layout requirements to create such an image. If you have images which consist of mostly people and animal subjects, the comics filter will certainly be one of your favorites. In my particular case, I used a photograph of some buildings.

Comics Basic Settings

A total of 29 different filter settings (including the default filter) are available to you for immediate viewing and comparison. And as mentioned previously, you can create your own settings at anytime by experimenting with the sliders and saving your adjustments to a setting name.

Below you can see the rather dramatic difference Snap Art made to my original image.
