Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng, VC
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to apply an "IWarp" filter to an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
First, click "Filters" on the top-left side of the window.
Then, move the cursor to "Distorts".
Click "IWarp..." from the menu that appears. A dialogue box will appear with a preview of the image and some settings on the right-hand side.
Now, you can click one of the modes in "Deform Mode". The options that you have are "Move", "Grow", "Swirl CCW", "Remove", "Shrink", and "Swirl CW". For this tutorial, let's click "Move". It is the setting that will shift parts of the image.
You can change the "Deform Radius" and "Deform amount" values. You can do that by clicking and dragging the scrollbar or by typing the number into the box.
You can check or uncheck "Bilinear".
If you like, you can also check "Adaptive supersample". Then, you can change the "Depth" and "Threshold" values as well.
Now, click and drag the preview to apply "IWarp". Depending on the size of the deformation radius, you can change a wider or smaller area of your image. The effects can be quite dramatic.
If you want, you can click "Reset". The settings will be reset.
You can also click "Cancel" to close the window and not save anything.
However, if you are satisfied with your settings, click "OK" to apply them.
