1 Select the bitmap with the Pick tool.
2 Click Bitmaps, Art Strokes, Impressionist.
3 Move the Horizontal and Vertical sliders to set the number of pixels that are displaced horizontally and vertically.
Increasing the value increases the effect of blurring on the original bitmap to the point where the bitmap can become unrecognizable. The range (between 1 and 100) is measured in pixel displacement. For example, a setting of 10 for the vertical displacement diffuses the bitmap over a 10-pixel vertical region.
4 Enable the Lock button to set the horizontal value equal to the vertical value.
The Lock button is enabled when it appears depressed.
• The Impressionist effect supports all color modes except Black-and-White.
