4.5. Scatter HSV


This filter is found in Image>Filters/Noise/Scatter HSV

The Scatter HSV filter creates noise in the activ layer or selection by using the Hue, Saturation, Value (luminosity) color model.



This preview displays interactively changes before they are applied to the image. It reproduces the upper left corner of the layer or the selection. It is divided into two parts. The right one is a view magnified 1:4 to the pixel level. Right-click on the left part to move preview across the image.


This slider (1 -8) controls how much the new pixel color value is allowed to be applied compared to the existing color. A low holdness will give an important hue variation. A high holdness will give a weak variation.
