Crystallize Pixels in Photoshop CS6

Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng, Anonymous

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can crystallize an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. First, you should have Photoshop CS6 open. Create a new document or open an existing one. I've shown you how to do that in other tutorials. You can see I have a document open, indicated by the tab on the left. That document has one layer.

  7. 7
    Click the downward-pointing arrow next to the plus and minus signs.
    This allows us to change the zoom by clicking to select a percentage that we'd prefer to zoom to. "25%" is generally going to show the whole image. We will zoom in to see the effect better. We will choose "200%".

    Click and drag the scroller beneath the image to the right.
    This makes the effect more intense. As we make it more and more intense, it almost completely gets rid of the cat image that we have.
