Posterizing a Picture
Posterization became popular in the psychedelic movement of the 1960s as a way of making images seem more intense. Photoshop Elements includes a filter called Poster Edges to create this effect.
- With the Editor in Full Edit mode and an image open, choose Filter, Artistic, Poster Edges.
- Adjust the sliders for Edge Thickness, Edge Intensity, and Posterization until you like the look of the image.
