Buy $4.50 for the entire collection of 180 Filters of amazing filters for the PC (Windows) inc. blurs, gradients, textures, distortions, grains, patterns, noise etc gallery

 

The EM can be found in the middle of the dialog and are linked to the mode slider. The higher the mode slider will result, the greater the amount of blur and smear and noise will be taken from the source filter

 

If you use the EM, the filter is applied as a blur or sepia etc and not as the actual filter

 

Basic mode - (this is the default) and just applies the tool as is and doesn't use it as a source for anything

 

Tone mode - uses the EM to modify the tone of an image

 

Shift subtle - uses the EM to create a subtle distortion / paint like

 

Shift extreme - painted / colorful distorted results

 

Shift horizontal - uses the EM to create horizontal distortion of the image

 

Cutoff mode - uses the EM as a threshold for the image

 

Cutoff1 - a variant threshold

 

Smear - uses the EM to smear / blurry smear the image

 

Horizontal blur - uses the EM to blur the image horizontally

 

Blur color - uses the EM to blur but blurs with emphasis on color

 

Smear color - uses the EM to smear and color the artwork

 

Smeary color - a variant of the smear color but more extreme

 

Smear horizontal - horizontal smear applied to an image

 

Old smear - a sepia smearing / vintage sepia added to the image

 

Gray - a variant smearing but this time grayscale

 

Overlay - a colorful result heavily depending on the EM setting

 

Grain - a noise added to the image

 

Jitter - a variant grain / noise

 

Doubled / Doubled2 - color modification

 

The result of the EM settings and dropdown can vary depending on the strength and setting and the image itself. Sometimes the results will be magical but in many cases, you can only push the image so far

 

The extreme button does not randomize the mode related settings
