Is there a way or even better a PS Plugin that can randomly apply the exact type of pixelated pattern as shown in the lower half of the example in the image I have attached.
In the example the text in the top half is the original and is 55 pixels high but I have enlarged the example to show the details for this post.
If you look closely at the bottom half of the example you will see that it has a Rasterize effect which affects the edges of the text then there is also a Noise effect applied over all of the image so that it affects the Rasterized parts of the image as well as the body of the text.
I have tried to do this using Photoshop and I have run into some issues. Photoshop does not seem to have a specific Rasterize plugin as it treats Rasterize as the process of converting a vector layer to pixels but what I need is an art effect so to speak. Also the Photoshop Add Noise Filter adds noise to the white background as well as the text which I do not want.
I have been working on this, on and off, for a couple of weeks now and after much failed experimentation and reading too many unhelpful web tutorials I wonder if any of the expert users here might be able to throw me a life line?
Many thanks in advance.
