Some time ago, I came up with this very easy effect while playing with a picture posted at Digital Photo School Blog.

After opening that picture at Photoshop, I started playing with filters and Smart Blur caught my attention. It gave some kind of vectorized or plastic look to the picture. After that, I applied a couple of filters more, ending up with this result. I also applied the folded paper effect to an image from a travel blog I published on IvBeenThere.

This effect is amazingly simple. It is based on using only Smart Blur and Unsharp Mask filters. And that’s all. In fact, it is so simple that I had to add another special effect, a paper folding effect, to the image to make this tutorial a bit more enticing.
