And you’ll have fun fun fun until daddy takes your filters away
Photoshop CS6 has lots of ways to modify pictures, but some of the most fun are filters. Many filters come with the program, but if you’re not satisfied with all of them, there are billions and billions and billions of third-party filters available, some free, some inexpensive, and some expensive.
One of the third-party filters that I bought is Fractalius by Redfield. It cost $39.90, which I consider to be on the expensive side for a Photoshop filter. Redfield is a Russian company, which might explain why the filter is now available via instant download and required a PayPal complaint to get my download code. Nonetheless, I am extremely happy with the filter.
Recently I was out in a field of grasses and snapped this photo:
The bright, sunny day caused the grasses to be somewhat washed out, but since I shoot RAW files, I was able to recover some color and contrast:
Still not being satisfied, I took the second picture and applied the Redfield Fractalius filter to it. Here are some of the results:
Each picture took about five seconds to create and save, and there literally are millions of possibilities. It’s a lot of fun!
