Effects Brush Tool
 

 

This tool can be used to perform a number of special effects, such as smoke, red-eye reduction, re-color, etc. It has several modes of operation, selectable from a popup menu. You can set the size of this tool's tip by setting the width entry on the toolbox. The level entry changes the tool strength. Use the palette to change colors.

This tool can be operated with a brush object if one is available, however, some custom brush functionality will not be available.

This tool is pressure sensitive when using a graphics tablet; the pressure varies the width of the tool tip.

You can select a brush-tip mode for this tool:

Options

Shadow

This option is intended for applying regular shade, for example a shadow.

 

Highlight

This option simulates a highlighter pen. Combine this with a custom brush to create realistic and artistic hightlights.

 

Color Replace (Re-color)

This option replaces colors in the image with color 1, without affecting the natural tone and lighting of objects in the image. The car in the example below was once red.

Holding down shift will constraint the brush to only affect colors whose hue closely matches color 2, subject to the effect level.

 

Underpaint

This option is used to apply background color to transparent/translucent areas in a layer as if one was painting “behind” it. Just run it over the area to be underpainted.

 

Colorize Foto

This option is used to add color to black-and-white photographs. The brush adds color 1 to the area while maintaining brightness and tone. Just run it over the area to be colored. See the coloring tutorial for more information.

 

Colorize Toon

This option is used to add color to black-and-white drawings and cartoons. The brush adds color 1 to the area while maintaining brightness and tone. Just run it over the area to be colored. See the coloring tutorial for more information.

 

 

Decolorize

This option is used to remove color from photographs.

 

Sepia-tone

This option is used to add a sepia-tone effect to photographs.

 

Dodge

This option is used to brighten under-exposed regions of a photograph.

 

Burn

This option is used to darken over-exposed regions of a photograph.

 

Chroma Blur

This option spreads out color without affecting texture or sharpness.

 

Red-eye Reduction

This option attempts to correct the red-eye effect introduced by the "flash" used by digital cameras. Just run it over the red portion of the eye.

 

Smoke

Acts like a translucent brush of some sort - it adds just a little bit of the selected color to the area. You can use it to draw smoke by adding a little black to the area over a chimney, for example. Or some white to the sky for clouds...

 

Censor

This option is used to apply censorship to images where privacy or ethical issues are a concern. Just run it over the area to be censored.

 

 

 

These are the Tool-box, Palette and Layers windows, respectively. For help on how to use them, consult the User Interface article.
