Bubbles or Whatever

Is this a single filter? A stand-alone? A combination? Are there tutorials? I've seen lots of pieces out there with similar effects and wonder how they are achieved. Any ideas?

It's probably going to be difficult to replicate it exactly, but to my mind half the fun is experimenting for myself.

If you are talking about the mosaic-like effect that is possibly a second image overlaid as a texture, though Photoshop's "Stained Glass" filter produces a similar effect.

I resized the image, made a new layer, filled it with a circular gradient (white in the center, about 50% gray at the edges) and applied the Stained Glass filter (cell size 10, border thickness 2, light intensity 0) and set the layer to Overlay mode.

The filter (in my version) is under the Filter > Texture menu ... obviously changing parameters will give different effects.

It is a very interesting effect. The stained glass filter looks to break it down into more uniform "pieces" than the examples in 21_F.gif nam's link. I poked around and could not find any tutorials that achieved similar effects.

It's reminding me of something I came across playing with filters some time ago, but I can't put my finger on it right now...

Very interesting effect indeed!
One thing of note is that the base image appears to be strongly distorted within the edges of the "shapes." Made me wonder if this was based on a photo at all, or entirely created. After looking at two other image she has done in a similar vein, I believe it is based on a photo. It's a very cool look.

That's a lovely effect.

Yes, it seems to be some sort of "stained glass" effect.

Maybe something like this: https://www298.lunapic.com/editor/?action=stained-glass
02/27/2018 08:03:19 PM · #10
My guess would be various Topaz filters and some creative hand manipulating. Why don't you just ask the artist? She may or may not tell you, but you never know unless you ask.
02/28/2018 01:36:38 AM · #11
Thanks. I will ask the artist. I just thought it might be a well-known filter as I've seen others that I thought were similar. Appreciate your ideas.

I think it's a bit less geometric than that, but there are lots of other interesting effects on the Lunapic site: https://www298.lunapic.com/editor/?action=art

I just looked through her portfolio and I saw many things that made me think Topaz Impressions and Glow were used. Glow can do some really interesting things to tree images...it's fun to experiment with, same with Impressions.

Thanks. I have Impressions but not Glow.

Glad I could help. I'm planning to experiment with it too.

I think that is pretty close. An example with no further tweaking (other than size)Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1212381.jpg .
I'm sure that with some other pp it could be made to look even more like the op example.

Thanks, Gina. Another morning bites the dust ;-)

Nice. I need to find time to play with it myself.

I wish there was a way to customize the effect within the lunapic editing process, but I can't see one.

I also made a circular gradient fill and applied the effect, and one where I filled the frame with 33% gray and applied Photoshop's "Cloud" filter first to create random shapes.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1212405.jpg Circular gradient + effect: Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1212403.jpg "Clouds" + effect: Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1212404.jpg

I also tried using one of the "random + effect" images on top of the picture in Darken mode to apply just the lines over the original image, but I guess I didn't save those ...

Okay, so I checked this out and am not understanding how it works. I have a trac cell phone just so I can get calls in an emergency when I'm out. IOW, I don't do photography on phones, I don't put apps on phones, etc. I would really like to play with this, but couldn't figure out how to do it. I tried to do a direct upload but that didn't work. It spun and spun and finally timed out - probably file was too large? But I want something I can play with on large files. Something I can safely download to my pc to play with. Can I make this work for me?

Nikkie, check out the Redfield plugins. They have several that would probably do what you want.

Awesome, thank you so much. I really like this Efex. I will try this out.

Thanks to the OP for posting this thread. Thanks also to GeneralE for some thought-provoking examples. It's been a long time since I used Photoshop--I had to blow about 3 years of dust off before I could start. I have no new images, so I used an old one. I've been experimenting with editing apps on my phone, & posting my jewelry to Instagram.

I used the Stained glass filter (I like the way it posterizes the color), a reverse image layer to get the color, a warp layer for distortion, & various brightening/sharpening layers. It was fun! I like the kaleidoscope feel to it, I think it'd work very well with a flip'n'blend.

I discovered that the color of the lines/borders in the stained glass depends on what primary color is picked before you apply the filter.

I hope more people will try this, & post here.
