Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating tiles, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects and Filters (2012).
We've all seen mosaics that are comprised of individual tiles and that can …certainly be an interesting effect for a variety of different images but, …sometimes you might want to to use tiles that contain more than a single color …that actually contain entire sections of a photo and that's exactly what I'm going …to do with this image. I'll break it up into a number of tiles …and spread those tiles out just a little bit just to create sort of a fragmented …and slightly more interesting interpretation of the photo. …Let's take a look at the process of creating that effect. …I'll start by creating a copy of my background image layer by dragging that …layer down to the Create New Layer button at the bottom of layers panel.…
And then from the Filter menu I'll choose Convert for smart filters so that I …convert my background copy layer to a smart object and therefore can use smart …filters which allow me to go back and fine tune the settings which in this case …is you'll see can prove very very helpful. …
