Selective Color

When specifying the color that is to be changed to, the tip of the arrow does not lie at the center of the cursor cross hairs, but a little shy of this point. It is easy enough to compensate for this discrepancy, but it would be nicer if the two coincided. In most situations, this minor difference i...

Re: Semi-precise Gaussian?

If the mask had hard edges, I've wondered about reducing the area of the image and mask a factor of 25 ( x 1/5 in each direction), performing a precise Gaussian on the resized image with the resized mask, then resizing the blurred image back to the original size, and finally using Composite with the...

Semi-precise Gaussian?

Sometimes I want to blur a background without bleeding and with a blur radius quite a lot larger than 64 pixels (Being faster than Precise Gaussian wouldn't hurt either.). Might a transformation be developed that uses the box filter blurring method as in Gaussian Blur with a mask that functions like...

Re: Mask lists

Sorry, I am afraid that I am still confused. "Reset" appears in the window even when no mask has been defined anywhere and there is nothing to reset or remove. Also, If I have invoked a preexisting mask and modified it, then come back to the transformation and click on the mask button, selecting "Re...

Re: Mask lists

A later thought. It would be simpler and more intuitive if that window always displayed the eligible masks, whether or not one had already been chosen and in use. If one had been previously chosen, one naturally expects that a new choice would replace the old one. While it is necessary to retain "Re...

Re: Mask lists

OK. Thank you. I think one would be less likely to experience my difficulty if "Reset" in the window were replaced with "Remove current mask".

Mask lists

The first time you click on the mask button to the right of the amount slider, a window then displays all the existing masks of the proper size. If you come back to the transformation and again click on the mask button, the widow that opens does not contain the list of acceptable masks. It seems mor...

Changing Black with the Selective Color Transformation

Black can be shifted to any desired color with the Selective Color transformation by first using the Color Negative transformation, shifting white to the negative of the color you desire, and then applying the Color Negative transformation again.

Re: Motion Blur->Multiple Exposure

Thank you for the added range of Strength and the implicit warning to click very briefly if I aim to add a single sample point.

Motion Blur->Multiple Exposure

Some very nice multiple exposure effects can be created with the Motion Blur transformation if the blur path contains just a few of the small red circles. Instead of dragging your mouse to define a path, just click on each point you wish to have a displaced image generated. (After each click you do ...
