Distort Filters

Image

Only three of the twelve Distort filters are available through Photoshop’s Filter Gallery—Diffuse Glow, Glass, and Ocean Ripple. The rest of the filters are covered in the Other Filter Effects section on pages 350–367. The Distort filters, as you would expect, distort your image, sometimes to the point where you’re left with a picture that is unrecognizable from its original. However, there are also plenty more subtle results, as you’ll see in the pages that follow.
