Gaussian Blur The Gaussian Blur special effect in Corel PHOTO-PAINT is now available as a lens that lets you blur images non-destructively.
Use Lenses for non-destructive image editing and applying special effects.
You can limit where an effect applies by painting on the mask layer.
Adust the level of blurring manually by selecting the Paint tool, a brush tip and then painting in grayscale to add more or less blurring.
Drop-shadow is an existing feature which allows you to simulate the effect of volume on selected objects.
It’s a great way to bring forth certain elements, and a visual convention for introducing visual hierarchy to a design.
In X8 we've introduced Gaussian Blur that allows you to adjust the degree to which the drop-shadow feathers at its edges.
Using this effect you can control the perceived distance and size of objects against the background and other elements and describe the relationships between interactive elements.
As always, this is a live preview effect, and its results are reversible and non-destructive.
