Fun Filters to Experiment with in Photoshop Elements 11

Distort images for fun.

With a couple exceptions, the Elements Distortion filters twist, turn, and bend images in surprising ways, turning ordinary objects into wavy images, pinched shapes, and bloated spheres.

The first exception? The Diffuse Glow filter distorts images only to the extent that it imbues them with a soft, romantic, fuzzy look that can make the sharpest image look positively ethereal.

The Glass filter can add a glass-block texture or a frosted-glasslike fuzziness to an image. Other filters on this submenu produce wavy images, add pond ripples, pinch images, or transform images into spheres.
