Hey Fablers, welcome back to another Academy tutorial. In this tutorial, we're going to talk about the Pixelate effect.
We have our scene here. We have a JPEG that we've previously imported. You can import whichever one you'd like. With it selected, let's go to the top right to the effects panel, drop it down and let's type in pixelate.
Click drag and drop. Remember if you're trying to look for an effect or you're interested in experimenting and you're not quite sure what an effect is called, you don't have to type it. You can always just open up your effects window and use the sidebar here to navigate through our full library.
But as this grows, it'll get a little bit harder to scroll for hopefully hours and infinite effects.
We've got our layer. Pixelate is applied. You can see here, we basically have two options. One is pixel as square. The other is size. Size is the obvious one. As we make this larger, the actual pixels of our image simply enlarge themselves.
If we turn off pixel as square, this gives us the opportunity to control width and height independently. So we start getting some really cool nonuniform looking effects, which can make for a really fun effect on our image.
