Learning About Filters

You can read about filters all day long, but until you apply one yourself, it's all academic. When you do, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

■ Distort filters can completely reshape an image; they are highly resource-demanding.

■ Photoshop applies most of the Pixelate filters as soon as you click the command, without opening a dialog box.

■ Digimarc filters notify users that the image is copyright-protected.


Some imported files may require rasterizing before they can be used in Photoshop. These files have vector artwork. During rasterization, the mathematically defined lines and curves of vector art are converted into pixels or bits of a bitmap image.
