Use Despeckle Effect on Image in GIMP
Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to use the "Despeckle" filter on an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
It's in the horizontal menu along the top of the window.
Move the cursor to "Enhance" in the menu
In the expanded menu that appears, click "Despeckle..."
A dialogue box will appear with a preview of the image.
You can click and drag the preview to see different areas of the image
You can also click the scrollbars and arrows on the sides.
If you cannot see the preview, ensure that the "Preview" box in the dialogue window is checked
Next, you can check or uncheck "Adaptive" and "Recursive" under "Median"
For this tutorial, only "Adaptive" is left checked.
Below, you can change the "Radius" value
You can do it by clicking and dragging the scroller or by typing a value into the text box. Also, you can click the up and down arrows on the right.
You can then change the "Black level" value in the same way
Use this option to create a painting-like effect on the image.
The "White level" value can also be changed using the scroller, text box, or up and down arrows
Click "Cancel" if you want to return to the image without making changes
Once you are satisfied with your changes, click "OK"
This will apply them to your layer. A green bar will run across the bottom of the screen, letting you know that the changes are being applied.
