K I Select the bitmap with the Pick tool.
2 Click Bitmaps, Distort, Swirl.
3 Enable one of the following buttons:
• Clockwise — sets the direction of the rotation clockwise
• Counter-Clockwise — sets the direction of the rotation counter-clockwise
4 Click the Set Center button.
5 Position the cursor over the bitmap, and click to set the center point around which the image swirls.
6 Move the Whole Rotations slider to set the number of rotations that the swirl completes.
Lower values result in a swirling effect; higher values result in a concentric, whirlpool effect
7 Move the Additional Degrees slider to set additional degrees of rotation more precisely. For example, a value of 90 rotates the bitmap an additional quarter turn.
• The Swirl effect supports all color modes except Black-and-White.
• You can also set the number of rotations and degrees by typing values in the Whole Rotations and Additional Degrees boxes.
