EyeCandy 3.1
Squint Filter
Created by: Fignations of Imaginment


This filter adds a Squint effect to the selection.

This filter can be applied to a selection or to the entire image without making a selection.

There is only one option for this filter: Radius.



This adjusts the radius of blur around each pixel in the image. Amounts are from 1 to 150.

1st image: Radius = 2
2nd image: Radius = 10
3rd image: Radius = 30
4th image: Radius = 150

Be careful when adjusting the radius using the slider. Once you hit 30, the adjustments are smaller and occur in the small area between 30 and the end (150).

Saved Effects

The pull-down menu that shows "Last Used" by default has a number of predefined effects you can choose. You can add your own settings by clicking on the pencil icon or delete settings by clicking on the eraser icon.

Other Shapes

This filter works on any selection, including text. It can be used to blur a selection or create a squinting through glass effect. Use it in combination with other filters, like bevel or glass.
