I’ve occasionally used ImageMagick’s erode and dilate filters to make art look a little less digital. Turns out those filters are also available in Photoshop and Affinity Photo, just under different names: minimum blur and maximum blur. I had no idea. (I should mention that there might still be subtle differences between the algorithms. I didn’t do a deep dive. But from my limited testing they seem to do the same thing.)
