Brush Strokes

Using the commands of the Brush Strokes menu, you can create simple artistic effects, add strokes, grain, and texture to an image. You can apply these effects: Accented Edges, Glowing Edges, Splatter, Spray.


Accented Edges. The effect emphasizes edges in an image with darker or lighter strokes. Depending on the settings, it simulates a line drawing or simply highlights the edges of a photo.


Glowing Edges. The effect defines edges in an image and adds a neon glow to them, filling the rest of the areas with black.


Splatter. The effect simulates splatters creating splashes and blots of paint.


Spray. The effect simulates paint spraying along the specified direction.


If the Fixed Preview Area check-box is enabled, all changes will be displayed in a small preview area. If the check-box is disabled, the changes will be applied to the area visible in the Image Window.

Click Default to restore the original settings.

Click OK to apply the changes to the image and close the effect dialog box.
