Hour 17. Using the Improvement Filters > Adjusting the Effect of Filters

Adjusting the Effect of Filters

In Photoshop, you have the ability to apply a filter and then fade it out by a percentage. Unfortunately, Elements lacks this feature. (For now—the next edition will probably have it.) But you can create a fairly good imitation of the effect by copying the image to a new layer before you apply the filter. Filter the top layer, and then adjust the opacity of that layer until you have just enough of the effect, with the unfiltered background layer showing through and putting back as much of the original image as you want it to. In Figure 17.27, I’ve applied the Dust & Scratches filter too generously to a copy of the picture.

Figure 17.27. Oops, that’s too much blur.
