Filters are a part of Adobe Photoshop often misused or overlooked by designers. Author Nigel French teaches a creative approach to filters, explaining how to combine them both with other filters and with the Photoshop masking and blending tools for maximum visual impact. Plus, learn how to use filter blending modes, filter masks, and how to stack filters to create unique filter combinations.
(music playing) Hi, I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Photoshop for Designers: Filters. In this course we're going to create good looking and practically useful image treatments with Photoshop filters using non-destructive techniques and a transparent workflow. Photoshop filters are sometimes derided as being cheap tricks. But we're going to see how to push beyond the standard results. When you combine filters and when you use filters alongside other Photoshop features like blend modes, layer masks, and clipping groups, their creative potential increases exponentially.
When you think about how most of the filters are derived from traditional analog techniques, you can apply them in similar ways to their traditional counterparts, and you can apply them in unexpected ways, ways in which they were not necessarily intended for. So let's get started with Photoshop for Designers: Filters.
