Fall 2014 – 14 – Rose Filters


I can effectively utilize the capabilities of Filters in Adobe Photoshop.


Video Link:

None. See folder #14 in the Student Pickup Folder for more details.


Topics Discussed:

  • Filter Gallery
  • Destructive Edit



Open the file “justrose.jpg” in Photoshop. Change the photo using five different filters. Save each picture individually saving it with the name of the filter you used (For example: ”Colored pencils.jpg”). Design a composition in InDesign using your five different pictures. One picture should be bigger than the rest (The focal point or “dominant image”). Pick out your favorite filter image to make the dominant image. Fill up the page with the pictures. Near each picture (using Proximity!), use the text tool to write a caption with the name of the filter you used. When finished, save the file as <your name>.filters.indd, create a new folder with your name, place your InDesign file and all five of the rose pictures inside it and copy the entire folder to the “14 – Rose Filters” folder in the Student Drop Folder.
