Applying the Pointillize Filter
Pointillism is a technique pioneered by French Impressionist painter Georges Seurat more than a century ago. His paintings are composed of thousands of tiny dots of bright colors—and the overall effect is apparent only when viewing the work from a distance. In a sense, he invented pixels, which are the building blocks of today’s computerized, digital images.
