Stylize filters overview
Unlike distortion filters, which warp and deform an image, stylize filters simulate different media, such as film, television, or print, for example.
There are 25 Stylize filters:
Add Noise adds noise to an image.
Bad Film simulates old or damaged film or playback equipment.
Bad TV simulates poor analog television reception.
Circle Screen simulates an etched screening technique using a pattern of concentric circles.
Circles adds elliptical facets to an image, giving it a mosaic-like appearance.
Color Emboss gives the image the appearance of being stamped into the Canvas.
Crystallize simulates the effect of viewing an image through a pane of glass with irregular facets.
Edges creates an edge-detection effect.
Extrude gives an object simulated depth.
Halftone simulates the halftone screening method for print.
Hatched Screen simulates a halftone pen-and-ink method of shading an image.
Highpass stylizes the colors in an image to create a psychedelic display.
Indent creates a shiny, bump-mapped effect, giving the appearance of depressed and flat areas.
Line Art creates an effect similar to a line drawing on paper.
Line Screen simulates an etched screening technique using a pattern of straight lines.
MinMax erodes or dilates the light or dark areas of your image into soft, blocky regions.
Noise Dissolve dissolves an object by adding a pattern of noise to it.
Pixellate turns an image into a mosaic of blocks using colors taken from an object.
Posterize reduces the number of colors in an image.
Relief creates the appearance of a 3D height map.
Slit Scan creates an animated fly-through effect similar to “stargate” images in science fiction films.
Slit Tunnel creates an animated fly-through effect similar to “warp tunnel” images in science fiction films.
Texture Screen uses a source layer to create a screen on an image.
Vignette simulates the light fall-off and corner-blurring effect characteristic of images viewed through some camera lenses.
Wavy Screen simulates an etched screening technique using a pattern of zigzagging lines.
