Applying Filters

One of Photoshop's trademarks is the capability to quickly change the appearance of a photograph or an image. Not only does Photoshop ship with a laundry list of filters for this purpose, but you also can buy other third-party filters for even more specialized purposes. Here we discuss some of the more widely used filters.

Did you Know?

If you notice that most of Photoshop's filters are grayed out, there's a good chance your document is set to grayscale or CMYK. In reality, many of Photoshop's filters will work only in RGB documents. This is specifically because those filters use calculations that can be applied only in RGB. If you need to use one of these filters in a CMYK document, choose Image, Mode, RGB to switch color modes, apply the filter, and then choose Image, Mode, CMYK to go back to your original color space. Be aware that color shift might (and most likely will) occur.
