Use the Facet Filter in Photoshop CS6

Edited by Freya, Crystal, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how you can facet an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.

Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should have Photoshop open, and either create a new document or open an existing document
    .
    This works best if we're using a photo because it gives the illusion that the photo is an abstract painting. We've already got a document open, and on the right-hand side there is only one layer. If we have more than one, we should make sure that we've selected the layer we want to be working with, and not a random background layer.
