Crystallize Pixels in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng
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.
Make sure that the layer that should be edited is selected
The list of layers is on the right-hand side.
This is found in the navigation bar that runs along the top of the program window.
It brings up a pop-up menu with a preview of the image.
Zoom in by pressing the plus sign beneath the image preview on the left
Zoom out by pressing the minus sign, which is also located beneath the image on the left
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.
Click and drag the scroller to the left
As we do this, it makes the effect less intense. This gives us a more subtle approach.
Click in the field to the far right of the scroller and type a number
This is another way to choose the effect intensity, or "Cell Size".
This applies it to the canvas.
I've just shown you how you can crystallize the pixels in an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to pop them into the section below, and we'll do our best to get back to you.
