To apply the Displace effect

1 Select the bitmap with the Pick tool.

2 Click Bitmaps, Distort, Displace.

3 Click the Load button.

4 Choose a bitmap image to use as a displacement map and click Open.

5 In the Scale Mode section, enable one of the following buttons:

• Tile — repeats the displacement image to cover the image area

• Stretch To Fit — uses a single map stretched over the entire image area

6 In the Undefined Areas list box, choose one of the following:

• Repeat Edges — stretches the edges of the image to fill in exposed areas

• Wrap Around — fills the exposed areas with the opposite side of the image

7 Move the following sliders to set the amount of displacement:

• Horizontal — shifts images horizontally, from left to right

• Vertical — shifts images vertically, from top to bottom

• The Displace effect supports all color modes except 48-bit RGB, 16-bit Grayscale, and Black-and-White.

You can only choose the Repeat Edges and Wrap Around options in the Undefined Areas section if you merge all objects with the image background.

• You can also set the horizontal and vertical values by typing values in the Horizontal and Vertical boxes.
