I'll move up to the beginning version and …consolidate all the tabs. Now before we begin applying the filters, …we need to do some retouching. We want to remove any distracting …details, like this telegraph pole. So we want to end up with a layer that …looks like this. This has been achieved using Simple …Content Aware fill, I chose my Polygonal Lasso tool, made a selection of the …offending telegraph pole leaving area around its edge.…
And then press Shift and the Backspace Delete key. …And fill that selection with Content Aware. …And then just repeat that process until all of that distracting detail has been removed. …once that's done, I'm going to move on to applying the filters. …I'll convert the re-touch layer to a smart object and then Filter menu > Brush …Strokes > Angled Strokes. Cmd + 0 to have my image fit inside my window.…
