Texture Filters Transform
A series of filters that gives the image a textured appearance as though it has been ironed onto a textured surface.
Produces a fine patch of cracks that looks a little like flaking paint. Choose your image carefully!
Adds grain to an image making it look more like a traditional photograph. This is a useful mode to apply to make a digital camera image blend with a traditional shot and look more natural when combined. There's a choice of grain types and the intensity and contrast can be controlled.
Breaks the image up into tiles separated by grout. The size of tiles can be adjusted along with the width and contrast of the grout.
Draws a series of irregular shaped cells over the image, outlined by the foreground color, and fills them with an average of the contained pixels. The cell and border size can be changed.
Changes the image into a grid of colored squares. The colors produced are an average of all the enclosed pixels of each particular square. The size of grid can be changed and appears in varying depths to simulate a very realistic looking patchwork.
Adds a texture to the image making it look like it's printed on canvas or, like this example, a jigsaw puzzle.
