Add de­tails with a fil­ter

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Another tech­nique I like to use is the Poster Edges fil­ter (Fil­ter>Fil­ter gallery>Poster Edges). When I’m close to fin­ish­ing a paint­ing I will du­pli­cate it, flat­ten all my lay­ers and run the Poster Edges fil­ter. It crunches all the edges and can be harsh at first, so make sure to re­duce the Trans­parency by 60-80 per cent. The re­sult can sharpen ar­eas and give you more de­tail with­out a lot of work. You may have to erase ar­eas where the fil­ter isn’t work­ing, though.
