Effects tab and Object


Recommended Posts

What does it mean "Object"?  I tried using the effects under "Object" and nothing seemed to be happening.

When it says "object," it means that the area where the effect is applied is determined by where the pixel transparency changes. We like to call opaque pixels surrounded by transparent ones "objects"

What this means is, if there's no transparent pixels on the layer, the effect does nothing (or applies around the edges of the image). Try this just for experimental purposes:

-Open a new image

-Add a new layer

-Use the paintbrush to draw a colored splotch in the center

-Run a plugin of your choice from the object menu
