Laura shows us some of the great filters in Photoshop. This week we look at the Photoshop Artistic filters.
Photoshop Filters

You can apply Photoshop artistic filters to a whole layer or just to a selection. Depending on which filters you apply and which settings you choose for them, the creative possibilities are infinite.
You can make an image look hand painted, silkscreened, or sketched; apply distortion or noise; produce patterns or textures.Most of the Photoshop artistic filters are applied either via the Filter Gallery or via an individual dialog.

Photoshop Artistic Filters – How do we use the Filter Gallery?

  • Open a new image in Photoshop
  • Choose Filter – Filter Gallery
    (The Filter Gallery dialog has three sections: a preview area on the left, filter categories with thumbnails in the middle, and on the right the settings for the currently selected filter and a list of the filter effects you’ve previewed thus far).
  • In the middle pane of the dialog, click an arrowhead to expand any of the six filter categories, then click a filter thumbnail.
  • On the right side of the dialog, choose settings for the filter.
  • When you’re satisfied with the filters and settings you’ve chosen, just click OK!

To apply another filter effect, click the New Effect Layer button, click on another filter thumbnail iciaoQn any category, then choose your settings.

To remove a filter effect from the list, select it then click the Delete Effect Layer button instead.
