Paper Tile filter options

Presets, Preview, Split view
[Note] Note

These options are described in Section 2, “Common Features”.

Tile Width/Height

Filter starts cutting image before it displaces pieces; so, piece size and number of pieces in horizontal (Width) and vertical (Height) directions must be convenient to image size.

When these options are linked, tiles are square.

Move rate

This is the maximum displacement percentage against the side size of squares.

Wrap around

As tiles move, some can go out image borders. If this option is checked, what goes out on one side goes in on the opposite side.

Fractional type

Because of image cutting, original pixels can persist. There are three ways treating them:

Force

Remaining pixels will be cut also.

Ignore

Background Type option is not taken into account and remaining pixels are kept.

Background

Remaining pixels will be replaced with the background type defined in the following section.

Centering

If this option is checked, tiles will rather be gathered together in the center of the image.

Background Type

You can select the background type which will be used, if the Background radio-button is checked, among six options:

Inverted image

Background colors will be inverted (255-value in every color channel).

Transparent

Background will be transparent.

Image

Background colors will be unchanged. The original image is the background.

Color

Remaining pixels will be replaced by the color you can select. Default is the Foreground color of toolbox. You can choose another color using the color dwell or the color picker.

Random seed

Tile displacement can be done at random.

Use the selection as input/Use the entire layer as input

If there is a selection, transformation will be done in the selection from the selected part of the image or from the entire layer.
