Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an abstract image with Mosaic, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
The Mosaic filter not to be confused with mosaic tiles is one of those…filters that I very seldom use, but every once in a while it can create an…interesting effect.…Can you guess what this picture is?…Well, it's an abstract image of the Golden Gate Bridge and I think there might…be some creative use of Mosaic to create images like this.…There's also a practical purpose to using Mosaic as well.…So let me go into the practical purpose first of all.…I am going to switch over to the starting file.…
I have converted my layer for smart filters.…I am going to come to the Filter menu down to Pixelate and Mosaic.…Mosaic Tiles, by the way, which I have never found useful is right here in…Texture but we are after Mosaic.…So, first and foremost it's not going to get you anything that looks like a Mosaic.…So you want to dispel the idea immediately that's not what we are after here.…It's just going to dramatically pixelate your image.…One practical purpose is if you ever need to anonymize any part of your image…
