Lesson 12. Creating Special Effects > Applying and fading the Accented Edges fi...

Applying and fading the Accented Edges filter

The Accented Edges filter exaggerates the margins between areas with different colors. You can adjust the extent of the exaggeration by changing the edge-brightness control, but in this procedure, you’ll use a Fade command to mute the results.

1.
In the Layers palette, select the layer with the leaves image. Make sure that you select the layer itself and not the adjustment layer.

2.
Choose Filter > Brush Strokes > Accented Edges. Click OK to accept the default settings in the Accented Edges dialog box.

This image is somewhat too bright, so you’ll tone it down slightly.

3.
Choose Edit > Fade Accented Edges.

4.
In the Fade dialog box, drag the Opacity slider to 60%; then click OK.

5.
Save your work.
