I can effectively utilize the capabilities of Filters in Photopea.
- Filter Gallery
- Destructive Edit
Click on the picture of the pretty white rose at the bottom of this page to open the full-size copy, and save the full-size copy to your desktop. The file should be called “justrose.jpg”. Open this file in Photopea.
Open the Filter Gallery (Filter menu -> Filter Gallery) and search through the available filters, noting the Properties panel on the right hand side for each. See how each filter affects the image, and play with the Properties sliders and controls to see how the Properties affect the filter.
Look through all the filters, and pick five that you particularly like. Remember these five for the next part of the project; write them down on a piece of paper if it helps you remember the names of the filters.
Change the rose photo using one of your favorite filters. Export the picture as a JPEG with the name of the filter you used (For example: ”Neon Glow.jpg”). Note that when you apply this filter, it will permanently change the image. This is known as a Destructive Edit, because it will permanently alter the image when you save the .PSD document (or export it as a .JPG).
Open a new copy of “justrose.jpg” and repeat this process four more times, with a different filter each time. You should have five pictures, each with a different filter, when you are done.
Design a composition in Vectr 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 Type tool to write a caption with the name of the filter you used.
When finished, save the file as <your name>.filters.jpg (or .png), and upload this file and all five of the rose pictures to the “Rose Filters 2020” assignment post on our Google Classroom page.
Please note that you should be turning in six files to receive full credit: The Vectr image you created, plus all five of the rose images you created in Photopea!
