Chapter 20. Using Filters and Effects > Illustrator’s Filter and Effect Menus

Illustrator’s Filter and Effect Menus

Filters and effects fall into two categories: those applied to vector (Illustrator) objects and those applied to rasterized artwork. At the top of each menu are a couple of commands that allow you to quickly re-apply a filter or effect. The Effect menu also has a command that governs rasterization. The remainder of the two menus are divided into two sections. Generally, the commands located in the middle section of the menus are for vector, whereas those in the lower parts are raster filters (see Figure 20.6). One exception is Pen and Ink, Photo Crosshatch, which works on a raster image to produce a series of vector objects. Such filters as Drop Shadow can be applied to both vector and rasterized artwork.

Figure 20.6. When a filter or effect has been used, the top two menu commands will be available and will indicate by name which filter or effect they will apply.
