Center X, Center Y

Here, you can set the rotation center. Sliders and spin buttons control the position of rotation center on horizontal and vertical axis. You can also click on the rectangle button with an arrow on the right and then click on the image to pick coordinates.


More Angle will result in more blurring in a circular direction.


Dette filter kan resultere i et billede, som er større end det oprindelige. Med standardindstillingen for Justér vil lagets størrelse om nødvendigt automatisk blive ændret. Med indstillingen Klip vil resultatet blive klippet til lagets kanter.

On-canvas controls

This option (default) allows you to modify blur settings directly on canvas, for easier visual tweaking of blur settings. It displays a line with handle on both ends to move rotation center and transform.

Press Alt key to only move rotation center without transforming.

Press Ctrl key to rotate by 15° steps.
