Apply Lens to an Image in GIMP
Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to use "Apply Lens" on an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
First, click "Filters". It's at the top-left side of the window.
Move the cursor to "Disorts".
Then, click "Apply Lens...". A dialogue box will appear where you should see a preview image.
If you cannot see the preview, simply check the "Preview" box.
You can click either "Keep Original Surroundings" or "Set Surroundings to Background Color". The former option will keep the image around the lens effect, and the latter option will make it transparent.
Next, you can adjust the "Lens refraction index" value. You can do it by either typing the value or by clicking the arrows to the right.
Then, press "Tab" to apply the "Lens refraction index" value.
Once you're satisfied with the changes, click "OK". This will apply your changes to the layer.
