As you know, Adobe Photoshop is awesome for “fixing” your pictures — getting rid of blemishes, removing that tree you didn’t notice when you snapped the shutter but now looks like it’s growing out of your daughter’s head, etc. That’s all well and good, but my very favorite thing to do with Photoshop is to get creative. I love this quote from Tim Grey: “If you can imagine something, you can probably create it in Photoshop.” It’s so true! And especially true after Tim shares a bunch of powerful techniques with you in his new course Photoshop Creative Effects and Filters . You’ll learn how to create black-and-white interpretations; add monochromatic tints, vignettes, and film grain; harness dramatic effects like Tilt-Shift Blur and the new Oil Paint filter; and much more.
You’ll also learn about some wild and crazy effects you can apply when you are feeling adventurous. In this free lesson Tim demonstrates how to use the Extrude filter, which creates 3D geometric shapes from a photo. You’ll see how to adjust the filter settings to create many different versions of the image, from adding a bit of subtle depth to creating artistic blocks and pyramids. Have fun!
