Modifying Images with Photoshop’s Filters

Photoshop’s own filters offer a wealth of special effects you can apply to your photographs. They may not resemble the filter effects you can get with conventional glass or gelatin filters, but that’s the whole point. Photoshop lets you go beyond the limits of both film and digital cameras to create entirely new looks. This section will explore some of the things you can do with Photoshop’s own filters.

The section will not cover every one of the 100+ Photoshop filters. Many of the filters, such as the Sharpen, Blur, Grain, and Lens Flare filters were covered in other chapters. Quite a few other filters, such as the Offset filter, do things that aren’t particularly useful from a photographic standpoint, but which are consummately handy for other applications, such as creating seamless backgrounds for web pages. Instead, in this section we’ll look at the best of the rest. I won’t stick rigidly to Photoshop’s filter menu hierarchy, either. Filters that provide painterly effects will be grouped together, while those that add textures or drawing effects will be bundled among their own.
