Photoshop Filters
Video duration: 0s 5h 57m Intermediate


One of the keys to mastering Photoshop is understanding the multitude of filters that comes with the program. In Photoshop Filters, instructor Peter Bauer starts by discussing what filters are and how they work, then moves on to explain the specifics of each of Photoshop's built-in filters. Peter explores each filter group step by step, and also shows how to combine filters for one-of-a-kind effects. He also discusses how to add and use third-party filters to expand Photoshop's capabilities. This tutorial is meant to be used as a reference guide, allowing you to select any filter's name to quickly get an explanation and demonstration.

Topics include:
  • "Non-filter" filters
  • Artist filters
  • Blur filters
  • Brush stroke filters
  • Distort filters
  • Noise filters
  • Pixelate filters
  • Render filters
  • Sharpen filters
  • Sketch filters
  • Stylize filters
  • Texture filters
  • Video filters
  • Other filters: Custom to Offset
