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.

    We can see a subtle texture here, which almost looks like it's been done with a paintbrush.

    We can see the effect if we zoom in.
    To go backwards, we can undo it. Otherwise, that's how we facet an image.
