L limited radius bulge?


Recommended Posts

I'm new to paint.net (and image editing in general) so this may be a stupid question, but is there any way to control the area of a bulge (or at least achieve the same effect)? i.e. alter the size of a part of the image without changing any other parts or getting an abrupt "cutoff"

Thanks in advance.

well lets see

there's the bulge effect -effect>distort>bulge

has three sliders-- top slider sets the size of the bulge-- can even go negative on this to produce a shrunken area

bottom sliders possition the bulge-- real simple to use

I know, but what I meant was something where I can control the position, size, and amount of the bulge. That is just the position and amount, so I can't (for example) make a baseball bigger without also distorting the bat that's hitting it.

Open the image.

Duplicate the layer.

Deselect bottom layer.

With top layer selected, erase everything but the ball.

Select 'Rotate/Zoom' layer and adjust the zoom factor of the ball as needed.

Merge down layer.

You now have a bigger ball, while everything else remains the same!

you could possible use power stretch plug in depending on the application/situation of the part you want to stretch... that plugin may be more appropriate .

LOL! see Welshy beat me to that one.

another good one that may work is to use pointwrap.

also I've been known to up the canvas size then apply bulge quite often with some interesting results.

I just downloaded and tried PowerStretch, but it's not quite what I was thinking of. That's more of a "push" tool than a "bulge" tool. Another example of what I want is what if I want to give somebody a really huge hand, but wanted to keep the rest of their body the same size. Putting it in a new layer and resizing it would make it look fake, but using the bulge tool would also distort their body (I'm thinking of somebody with their hand at their side, in case that's not obvious).

Open the image, select the hand with the ellipse tool, centre the bulge crosshairs on the ellipse and apply a bulge of roughly 5.

Duplicate the layer, slightly take out the diameter of the ellipse (move selection with CNTRL or SHIFT) and apply bulge again. Repeat this step 5 or 6 times.

Do this again 5 or 6 times, however this time making the ellipse diameter smaller as you go.

Under a microscope it might need a little bit of touching up, but generally it should suffice!

My apologies to the woman in the photo... nobody wants a hand like that!
