Using Filters in Photoshop CS4

Filters in Photoshop are a way to change the appearance of a layer by adding some sort of distortion or effect to the layer. It is just a matter of selecting the layer (or layers) that you want to add a filter to and clicking "Filter > [any one of them]" which will bring up a preview screen.

These filters do anything from make the layer look like its under plastic wrap to adding some sort of distortion. The best way to see what they do it to go through all the items in the preview window which looks like the following.

For our example filtering the car with the cutout filter will look like that. Each filter has settings which can be modified to change the look. Mess around with these to see what looks cool and click "OK" to apply the filter to the layer.
