Apply Mosaic Filter in Photoshop CS6

Edited by Freya, Ash0hley, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how to apply a mosaic filter to a video clip on Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7. As you can see, I've already got Photoshop open, and I've imported my video. It is showing a preview. The clips are on the Timeline, and the Layers are on the right-hand side.

Steps

  1. 1
    If we want to apply a filter, we should ensure that your video clip has been converted into a "Smart Object"
    .
    We can see it has been done here already. The Timeline will turn purple when it's been converted to a "Smart Object". Click again on the Timeline clip that you want.

    We can change the cell size
    .
    The default setting is 50, but we can drag this to make them smaller or bigger. This is really useful if we're wanting to make a palette by using larger cell sizes.
