This sub-menu contains eight effects which are used to distort, transform or convolute the active layer or selection.
The following original image will be used to demonstrate the effects:
This effect makes part of the layer or selection swell or shrink, as if the image had been stretched or squeezed.
This transforms the active layer or selection to make it appear as though it was made from a mosaic of randomly shaped crystalline cells.
This popular effect distorts the active layer or selection as if it was reflected in turbulent water.
This will make the original appears as if it were being viewed through a sheet of frosted glass.
This effect greatly reduces detail by enlarging regularly sampled pixels. The resultant cells are always square in shape.
This applies a transformation between Cartesian and Polar coordinate systems. Essentially this effect recursively wraps the image around itself in an endlessly repeating pattern.
This makes the image appear as if reflected in a wall of mirrored tiles, each having a slight curvature to it's surface.
This effect mimics winding the image around a skewer placed through the monitor. Clockwise and counter-clockwise rotations are possible.
