The program The Easy Photo Cartoonizer creates cartoons as the result of joining two images together, the background and the foreground ones, which creation is controlled by the user.
The process in which the background image is created gives it a more or less photo-realistic aspect.
The process in which the foreground image is created generates a black and white mask, which is created in accordance with the edges that are found on the original image, being this mask what gives the cartoon its cartoon aspect.
