Pointillize an Image in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Rushell, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to pointillize an image in Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7.
To begin, we should have Photoshop open, and either create a new document or open an existing one.
We should ensure on the right-hand side that we've selected the layer we want to be working with.
Come up to "Filter" on the menu at the top of the screen.
Then go down to "Pixelate".
Go across and click on "Pointillize".
As we can see in our preview, this gives the effect of of a pointillism painting, with the points being the small dots that are made up of the colors.
We can zoom in with the plus sign at the bottom left corner of the preview image.
We can also zoom out using the minus sign in the same location.
We can also select the percentage we want to zoom out or in by clicking on the small arrow next to the number.
25% will generally show enough of the image to get a good idea of what it will look like.
Underneath, we can select the "Cell Size", which is on "5" at the moment.
If we drag further to the right, this will increase the "Cell Size".
If we press "OK" to apply this to our canvas, it changes the image quite dramatically.
If we decide we don't like this and want to step back, we can go to our step back or undo option.
This is a VisiHow video, and we've just shown you how to pointilise and image on Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7.
