Create a Mosaic Photo in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow! In this video, we are going to show you how you can add a mosaic effect to an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
To begin, we should have Photoshop opened.
Then, we either create a new document or open an existing one. There are other VisiHow videos on how to do that. We can see that a document has been opened in the tutorial. This is indicated by the tab on the left.
If we have multiple layers, we should ensure that we've selected the layer that we'll be working with on the right-hand side.
We move down to "Pixelate".
We move the cursor across until we find "Mosaic...". Clicking it will bring a pop-up window where we can preview a filter by clicking and dragging the image.
We can zoom in by clicking "+" on the right-hand side.
We can zoom out with "-".
We can select the "Cell Size" value below. The cell size is the mosaic cell. We can drag the slider if we, for example, want it to be 122 squares. We will see that it will be like a color palette.
We can drag the slider left so that we see the outline of the image.
We can also click the input box and type a number as well.
Once we are satisfied with the results, we can click "OK" to apply the effect to the layer.
Alternatively, we click "Cancel" to go back to how the layer was before.
This is a VisiHow video. We've just shown you how to create a mosaic effect on an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to add them to the section below. We'll do our best to get back to you.
