Adobe Photoshop: How to make a photo look like a Japanese woodblock print?

I am working in Photoshop CS3 and would like to edit a photograph of mine to make it look like a Japanese woodblock print. This would probably involve creating a dark outline around the objects, and flattening planes to make them look more 2D. I’m also interested in trying to replicate the colours. Thanks!

    There are 2 techniques you can probably use to do this.

    The first technique is one that I found on this website. It has info on how to create some dark outlines.

    The second technique is by replicating traditional filters. This site has some details.

    Creating a realistic Japanese woodblock print out of a photo would be quite tough and requires a lot more work so I wish you all the best of luck!
