Here’s another free file for all you action lovers! This effect takes a normal image and gives it a blocky, “digitized” look. While you may not choose to use this for your next wedding album, it should be a handy effect to have on your shelf when you need to apply a quick “tech” feel to an image.
At first glance this action may look like a simple application of the Mosaic filter, but while it does incorporate that feature, the end result is something significantly more sophisticated. As is the case with all the actions I create, I’ve given you the user a wide latitude to customize this affect to your liking. You are in control of the size of the “blocks”, and can fully edit the layers used for the effect when the action is complete.
