the steps

1. Select the area you want the pixel in.


2. Click "Layer >> New Fill Layer >> Solid Color >> OK" and choose the color black.


Change the layer to hue.


It should be black and white now.
**the color that you see in mine is the splatter from the deco so don't mind that**


3. Make sure the vector is already merged into 1 layer. Select the area you want the pixel in (like step 1). Click "Layer >> New >> Layer Via Copy." The area you selected should have been duplicated. ONLY that area, not the rest of the vector.

4. Make sure you're on the "layer via copy" layer. Click "Filter >> Pixelate >> Mosaic" and set it to 4, 5, or 6. It really just depends what looks best for you. (I hid the deco splatter so it's easier to see)


I have this now


5. Click "Filter >> Sharpen >> Sharpen". Now sharpen it 1-2 more times.

Finished Product:
