TILING: TILING creates patterns and saves them to tiles. Repeating pattern
tile creates texture that you can add to any object.
POSTERIZE or SOLARIZE: Posterizing alters contrast levels in images into
which you may add colors or patterns. SOLARIZE is similar to
POSTERIZE except that the alteration approaches contrast extremes and the
image remains monochromatic. These filters are useful for separating art for
color reproduction or silk screenings.
THRESHOLDING: To reduce images to essential black-and-white areas, use
the THRESHOLD command.
FACETING: Create blocks of like-colored pixels by using FACETING to
group pixels together.
CRYSTALLIZING: CRYSTALLIZING arranges similarly colored pixels
into polygonic or hexigonic shapes resembling cut stones.
MOSAIC: With MOSAIC, you can specify the size and position of blocks of
pixels. This filter is useful and commonly used to obliterate identifiable
features in photographs and television.
NOISE: The NOISE filter replicates television transmission noise by adding
random patterns to illustrations.
Figure 8-26 shows NOISE.
