Smart Filters and Pixel Bender

I don’t usually take candid shots but just couldn’t resist this one, it seemed to sum up a typical British Summer holiday. It never was going to be a great photo but with a bit of help from filters such as Pixel Bender we can transform this grab shot into to something with a more painterly feel.

Some of the tools we will be using in Photoshop include,

  • Smart Filters
  • Layers
  • Pixel Bender
  • Shadow and Highlights
  • Blend mode



Pixel Bender can be downloaded from this link to  Lab Adobe  Up to CS5 only.  Not available for Elements or CS6 CC

  • The start image is included so you can work along with the video
