Dents

This popular effect makes an image appear as if it is on the other side of displaced glass, or turbulent water.

Frosted Glass

This will make the image appears as though it were being viewed through a sheet of frosted glass.

Example

Pixelate

This effect will reduce the detail in the image and give the effect that each "pixel" was much larger.

Example

Polar Inversion

This applies a transformation between Cartesian and polar coordinate systems (essentially, the image is copied around itself recursively).

Tile Reflection

This makes the image appear as though it were behind a sheet of glass with articulated tiles.

Example
