Bit confused

Am I allowed to use a slight Photoshop Elements 6 "Mosaic Filter" in "Advanced editing" over the whole image?

Sounds like it is adding something that isn't present in your original. If that is the case, no.

I don't think it will be allowed.. you are creating a mosaic out of a single photo.

if you post an example, it would be more clear

As far as I can tell, any of those artistic filters are off-limits.

Not necessarily, but personally I'd avoid this particular filter ...

You may:
apply filters, effects, dodge & burn, and other tools to all or part of your entry, but NO new shapes or features may be created in the process.

To me, the second clause renders the first irrelevant -- you can use a filter, but only if one can't tell it's been used ... :-(

Definitely creates new features and shapes not in the original.... looks like DQ territory to me.

Thanks everyone - I think the consensus is a no :)
