I recently had to update some screenshots on the StatsMix marketing site and needed to remove some personal information like API keys from the image. I wanted to just gracefully pixelate the data, keeping the image looking nice.
I’d done it before, but couldn’t remember what steps to take. After a some trial and error, I figured it out and decided to write these steps down in case I forget (again!) or someone else can benefit from this.
- Open Photoshop
- Crop section of image to pixelate
- Select Filter > Pixelate > Mosaic
- Set the Cell Size to 3 square
Please note, I’m using a pretty old version of Adobe Photoshop (CS3) and these steps may not work anymore. YMMV.
