I want to create a ascript that turns an image in to a paint by numbers photo that I can then print.

 

Is this possible, is this difficult?

You could make an action using the steps below to reduce the number of colors and have Photoshop outline the areas where a color goes.

 

  1. If you open an image that is on the Background layer, click the lock icon on the layer to make it a regular layer.
  2. At the bottom of the Layers panel, click on the middle icon to apply the adjustment layer Posterize.
  3. Set Posterize to the number of colors you want in the image.
  4. Optional: if you want to change the number of colors later or make other changes, you can select the image and the adjustment layer, right-click, and Convert to Smart Object.
  5. Go to Filter > Stylize > Find Edges to outline the areas of color.
  6. Optional: if you want to make the outlines grayscale, you can add a new adjustment layer for Black and White.
