- The Strobe Effects are also great…for creating abstract images like these.…Very, very simply.…I'm gonna create a new document.…1500 Pixels by 1500 Pixels.…RGB Color Mode.…I'll come and add a Solid Color fill layer…of black,…and delete the background layer.…Come and choose my polygon tool.…Set the number of sides to three.…
Fill of none.…I'm gonna use a magenta stroke…of 20 points.…Then I'll draw myself a triangle.…I can use my move tool to move that around.…So that I can apply filters to it non-destructively,…I'll right-click to the right of its name,…invert it to a Smart Object.…Come to my Blur Gallery.…Spin blur.…
If you don't see your pins and I don't at the moment,…come to the View menu,…Show,…Edit Pins.…I'll scale that up, so that it's covering my triangle.…I can now increase the blur angle,…but the punch line here is really the strokes strength.…I'm gonna put the Stroke Strength up to 100%.…I currently have four flashes.…I can experiment with the interplay…between the blur angle and the number of strobe flashes.…
