    If you are satisfied with your settings, then click "OK".
    This will apply them to the image. A green bar will appear at the bottom to show that the changes are being applied. This filter makes the image look as if it's melting. It is recommended to apply this filter on a layer that is next or above other layers; therefore, the comparison will be clearer.
