Learn how to apply Photoshop filters to shapes in a nondestructive way.
- Another way we can transform our shape layers…is by applying smart filters to them.…This is my starting point.…So, to begin, before I apply a filter to this,…I would like to change the fill color to a gradient.…I'm going to come and choose my path tool…and then come and from my fill swatch…on the Tool options,…choose Gradient,…and then we'll have…a foreground-to-background gradient…but then I'll click on gradient bar…to edit the gradient…and choosing colors from my swatches panel,…I'm going to go with a gradient…that combines the blue with the off white.…
And I'm going to set this to be…a reflected gradient with an angle of 45 degrees.…Now, I want to roughen up the edges by…applying a filter and if I try and apply a filter,…and the filter I'm going to use in this case…is zig-zag, but the same would…hold true no matter what filter I apply,…we get this choice to make.…Do we rasterize it, in which case…the vectors are no longer scalable vectors,…but rather pixels subject to resolution…or do we convert to a smart object.…
