Chapter 7. Filters and Effects > Creating Your Own Filters

Creating Your Own Filters

If all the existing filters aren’t enough, you can create your own filters through a rather arcane feature called the Custom dialog box. (Warning! We’re now entering territory that’s a bit on the advanced side, even for seasoned Photoshop users.)

The Custom dialog box allows you to control the brightness value of each pixel, influencing the neighboring pixels through a process called convolution (a mathematical operation). The first time you try this, it very likely will seem convoluted, but hang in there. With patience and creativity, you can craft filters that would be impossible to create using any other approach.
