you could also try going to image -adjust -posterize. If your pics are shot
w/ a digital camera in the b+wmode it will work nicely. Then you can use
your arrow keys to either increase the number of values in the posterization
or decrease. I have found that "5" works quite well w/ my Studio Art kids.
WE are currently doing this, then gridding them, then doubling them to paint
using monochromatic values, a la Chuck Close.

Am not sure exactly what look you are looking for, but try flattening
the image then go to filter - artistic - cutout. There are other things
to try but see if that is the effect you are looking for.

I'm looking for a quick few steps to get a color photo (portrait) to
look like
a black and white silk screen print. I can get the high contrast black
white easily (but maybe not efficiently), and I was wondering if there
is a
filter that will give me the screen pattern/ texture.

Thanks, Susan
