Fast faux painting effects in Photoshop

Want to quickly turn a photograph into a chalk art or painting?
You'll want to play with the cutout filter in Photoshop.
Before, the cutout filter was easy to find under the Filter menu. However, you may have noticed that in CS 6 some of the filters seem to be missing!
No worries. You can still find your favorite filters in the "Filter Gallery" under the Filter menu.
Then experiment with "Cutout" to create a great look to your photo like the one below. Try changing the number of levels of color until you get the look you want.
