You can click different effects in the "Artistic" panel
Those are the same effects that have been listed before in the menu. They have a small preview thumbnail. You can experiment to choose the one you like. The settings on the right side of the window may change depending on which effect you have selected.
You can see how different effects change your photo. The effect will change the photograph so that it looks like it has been created with a palette knife. It can be an interesting effect if you are creating artwork to go onto a wall or if you experiment digitally. In the settings section on the right-hand side, you can see that options have changed since a different effect to apply to the image is selected. The settings for "Palette Knife" effect include "Stroke Size", "Stroke Detail", and "Softness".
