Filter Effects With Photoshop

I'm using a smiley face smile.gif (241 bytes) image I found at Smiley Faces (Thank you, Nikki!) to show some of the many effects you can get with Photoshop filters. I only used about a third of the filters, and only one option from each filter. Remember  that many Photoshop effects are achieved using a combination of filters and actions.

If that isn't enough variety for you, there are a whole lot of plug-in filters that you can buy, or get through freeware or shareware!

I hope this gives you some idea of the interesting things you can do with Photoshop.
