There are 2 methods for Pixelation:
1. Smart Filter
- This uses a higher resolution and filters to create the effect.
- Pros: More control over effect, higher res files
- Cons: Edges may not be perfectly straight, depending on the graphic
- How to use: Double click on the smart object and edit the contents
2. Pixel Crusher
- This uses a small file size to manually reduce the resolution, creating the effect
- Pros: Creates a ‘perfect’ pixelated effect, with straight edges
- Cons: Less control over effect, small file size
- How to use: Edit text directly or replace graphic smart object
Workflow tip: To vectorise the effects, take a high quality screenshot, and paste into Adobe Illustrator.
