Lesson Info

Filter Gallery

Now let's do some creative effects to an image. If you look this particular image and I zoom up, you can see the how painterly and textured it looks. Well, I could use something like the oil paint filter, but if you saw with that filter, it looks more like brush strokes. This doesn't This feels more like canvas were something else that has a bit of texture. Let me show you how it was created in my layers panel. You'll see that this is a smart object because it has that icon in the corner, and it has some smart filters applied in down here. It says. Blur Gallery or not, Blur County. That's what we use. Last filter gallery. I'm gonna double click on the words filter gallery, and that's gonna bring this up in the filter gallery is something you can choose from the filter menu when you do, this appears, and it's kind of a weird interface because it's the only filter that lets you build effects up as if you're using layers without actually being in the layers panel. So it's kind of odd, but...

over here on the right side, there are whole categories of filters. Artistic brushstrokes distort sketch, stylized and texture. And if you expand them, you get previews of what a lot of those effects will look like if you applied it to a generic picture of a sailboat but the previous air so small that it's not as useful as you might think. Then, if you click on one of these, let's say this one called Under painting, it's gonna apply it to your picture. And just to the right of that, you're going to get the settings for that particular filter, and you can experiment with them and see how it affects your picture. Well, in here, you can build up more than one of these filters, like Stack one on top of the other. And that's what I've done to create this effect to stack one on top of the other, you go to the lower right, and in the lower right you're gonna find a little plus sign in. That plus sign indicates that you're going to create a new filter on top of one that's already being applied. If I click that wash the list up here, you see another one was added to the top Now we have two that are called rough pastels. Once I've done that, create a new one up here. I could choose which filter it is. We're actually going to apply. And of course, once I clicked on it, I would see the settings for it above, and I could dial them in if I want to add even another one. On top of that, I hit that plus sign again, and I get another new entry in that list. And then I could go again in here and choose another one in slowly build up in effect. So I've already done that. I'm gonna choose, undo a few times, intel. It gets me back to my original. And I just want to show you how this particular effect was built up. So you can see that these filters sometimes look basic where you're kind of gone. I wish this had a lot more to it, but if you build them up by applying more than one, then you can create a much more sophisticated effect. So I'm gonna zoom up on this. You can see the fine detail in over here in the list. On the right side, I'm going to turn off the eyeballs on everything. So therefore you can see the original picture untouched, then ultra on the bottom. Most choice, which would be the very first filter that I ended up applying. And when I turned that on, this was the end result. It was a filter called sponge, and you can see the settings right above that were applied for the sponge filter. You can choose a brush size and how smooth the end result is that type of thing. Well, on top of that, I wanted to change the overall look of this. In There is a filter called plastic wrap, which I find adds little highlights to an image. And so the next thing I did was apply the plastic wrap filter, and when I did, you can see these little additions of kind of white ish accents that are in here. If I turn it off and back on again, you get a sense for what plastic wrap is doing. And if you want to see it more, you could bring up highlight strength, and you see the actual shiny nous that it's adding. I just have that dialed down, so it's more subtle. After that, I applied another effect known as poster edges, and that gave it a little more depth and shadowy feeling. On top of that, I went for water color, which broke it up further. And then finally, of I applied rough pastels, which really gave it more of the texture of I don't know if I'd say campus, but something Ah, like a material that might have been used on in so I can end up building this up. It all he did was experiment with one of these filters to begin with. Once I got out the way I wanted, I hit the plus sign at the bottom and I tried a different filter, and I slowly built up the effect. And when I'm done, I can just click OK to apply it. Well, what's nice? And let's see. And I think I have an image lined up for this. But if I were to choose a different picture, open it and then dragged that picture over to that other file, I'm using the move tool. By the way to do so, there's a little lower red, so it's smaller. But if I take that layer and I converted to a smart object. Then I could take this thing called filter Gallery and see if I got a click on smart filters. See if I can drag it up there, and if it won't let me much, it won't turn it. I thought it would what I could do instead. No, there it is. It allowed me to drag it up there. I can apply it to a different layer so that Oh, and I played it three times because I I option dragged it cause Option Dragon usually means to move a copy, and I was just impatient in that it took it a while the update because it was applying multiple filters in. So in this case, it ended up applying those filters three times to the image, and therefore it looks absurd. That was me being impatient, thinking it should do things almost immediately. But now you can see the appearance has been applied here. So if you ever apply things with smart filters and it's just a list sitting below a layer, I know that you could go to a different layer. You just need to make sure that layers been converted to a smart object and you condone drag the list of filters to that other layer to transfer them there. And if you hold the option key, which is Alta Windows when you do it, then it's going to move a copy. And with this image, I noticed that there's a picture of a bus in here and I find that there's not enough detail in that bus. Well, that's what I would do, the same thing I did to that red car where I duplicated the layer. I went back into the filter settings and I find, tune them to get more detail to show up. And then I add a layer mask of that and I painted in so I can control where we get the additional detail. And if I did, I'd be able to get this same pain. Really look, but I could get more detail where the bus is not gonna do it here cause we did it with a previous image. But I just want to let you know that that could work

I am an avid reader of photoshop books, and an avid watcher of photoshop tutorials. I have attended (internet) several hundred of presentations. In the course of this endeavor, I have found my own favorite photoshop websites and instructors. Creative Live is probably the bargain out there as well as among the top three internet course sites. I have to say with great enthusiasm that the best Photoshop instructor is Ben Willmore. There are many great ones, but truly, he is the best I have come across, and, as indicated above, I have watched literally 100s of tutorials on Photoshop. I have seen all of Ben's courses, I think, and among them, this one is the best by far, and that is saying a lot, because that makes this course the best course on Photoshop to be found anywhere. I am going back and watching it twice. Not only is it comprehensive, but Ben is so familiar with his subject that he is able to explain it like no other. This is crème de la crème of Photoshop classes. I have been wanting to write this review for some time because I have been so thoroughly impressed with everything about this class!

Highly recommended if you want to take your Photoshop skills to the next level. Ben Willmore is clear, concise, and professional. He also has a good speaking voice that is not distracting but also keeps you engaged. Lastly, I would recommend that as you become more advanced, increasing the speed of the video (one of the options given on the menu)...especially if you've gone through the course once before and maybe want to watch it again. The double speed is very efficient as you become more advanced in Photoshop. Thanks for the help Ben!

Wow. I cannot communicate the value of this course!! The true value in this course is how the instructor identifies workflows you'll need before you'll ever realize it, repeats important information without it becoming annoying, and explains the "why" behind the techniques so well that even if you forget the exact method, you can figure it out via the principles learned. Excellent value, excellent material, excellent instructor!!!
