In this simple tutorial, we’ll learn how to use filters to create a futuristic abstract picture in Photoshop.
- Adobe Photoshop CS
Create a new document with 1920px width, 1200px height, 72DPI and white background. Set black and white as the foreground and background colors by pressing D. Now, create a new layer and let’s call it “wallpaper”.
We’ll now work with filters to create a futuristic abstract picture. Firstly, select Filter > Render > Clouds.
Now, go to Filter > Pixelate > Mosaic and use the values shown below.
After that, go to Filter > Blur > Radial Blur and use the following settings.
Go to Filter > Stylize > Emboss and use the settings shown below.
Apply Filter > Brush Strokes > Accented Edges with the values shown below.
Now, select Filter > Stylize > Find Edges.
Select Filter > Stylize > Glowing Edges and use the following settings.
We’ll now add some color to our abstract picture. Go to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and keep the values shown.
Finally, we’ll remove the sharpness a bit by selecting Filter > Blur > Surface Blur and using the following settings.
And that’s it!
