Learn about exploring the possibilities of the Offset filter combined with type.
- Let me show you how we can create some interesting effects…using the offset filter.…This might be more interesting…for the process than the result,…but I hope that it will spark in you some ideas…for how you can use this approach…to achieve some interesting effects of your own.…Here's my starting point,…a layer of type on top…of a Smart Object to which I've applied a couple of filters.…Let me just show you what I've done here.…
So I've applied a halftone pattern…using these values.…And then using the lens correction,…I've rotated that horizontal pattern…to be a vertical pattern.…I'm now going to…come and add…a solid color fill layer above that.…I'll turn back on my type,…right-click and covert my type layer to a Smart Object.…
Now I'm going to come to the Filter menu, down to Other,…and Offset, and I'm going to offset this first one…by 100 pixels to the right and no pixels down.…I'll click OK.…Now to achieve the effect, I need to take that pattern…and use it as a layer mask.…Option or alt and click on the pattern layer.…
