Apply Mosaic Filter in Photoshop CS6

Edited by Freya, Ash0hley, Eng, Anonymous

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how to apply a mosaic filter to a video clip on Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7. As you can see, I've already got Photoshop open, and I've imported my video. It is showing a preview. The clips are on the Timeline, and the Layers are on the right-hand side.

Steps

  1. 1
    If we want to apply a filter, we should ensure that your video clip has been converted into a "Smart Object".
    We can see it has been done here already. The Timeline will turn purple when it's been converted to a "Smart Object". Click again on the Timeline clip that you want.

    We can change the cell size.
    The default setting is 50, but we can drag this to make them smaller or bigger. This is really useful if we're wanting to make a palette by using larger cell sizes.
