    If you have Adobe Illustrator, one technique you can use is opening the photo and using the pen tool. Using the pen tool, outline areas of the photo that are similar in color, and make them one color. Doing this over the whole photo will give you an image with a smaller number of colors. This is a skill that has to be perfected, but it's fun to play around with.

    GoodTutorials.com has a ton of tutorials, they may have something you can use. Check the "Photos" section.

    Open it in flash and play with the "Trace Bitmap" function, then clean up what it spits out.

    That's how I made some of the artwork for my site, http://www.stevenmoseley.com

    Note that just because it traces the bitmap for you, doesn't make it easy. there's a LOT of cleanup work to do once it's done.

    i had a go at that, pretty cool. Messed my pic up a bit too much though.

    Is there a similar tool in photoshop?

    Decrease the colors from 100 to 50 or less.... increase the minimum pixel area (high res pics trace better) and switch the method to smooth.

    I haven't done it.... It's really time-consuming, though.... takes a few hours to make a nice one.
