Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a painterly effect with Find Edges, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects and Filters (2012).
I love when the effect I'm trying to accomplish is incredibly fast and easy to …apply, and that's certainly the case for a very basic effect with Find Edges. …If you apply the Find Edges filter, you might initially assume that it's not …really all that useful, but it actually can be blended with an image in a variety …of ways that make it quite interesting, I think. …I have an image here that is sort of more painting than photograph, you might say. …It has a zoom and blur effect that makes it not look exactly like a photographic image. …I'd like to create an even more dramatic effect, making it look a little more …painterly utilizing Find Edges. Let's take a look at how it's done.…
I'll start off by creating a copy of my Background Image Layer. …So I'll Drag the Thumbnail for that Background Layer down to the Create New …Layer button at the bottom of the Layers panel. …And then with that Background Copy created, I'll go to the Filter menu and …I'm going to choose Stylize followed by Find Edges. …
