3.3. Mean Curvature Blur

3.3.1. Общая информация

Regularize geometry at a speed proportional to the local mean curvature value: this filter uses the mean curvature algorithm to blur the image preserving edges.

Mean Curvature algorithm is describes in Wikipedia

Increasing Iterations increases blur.


The result of this filter can be larger than the original image. With the default Adjust option, the layer will be automatically resized as necessary when the filter is applied. With the Clip option the result will be clipped to the layer boundary.
