To apply the Swirl effect

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.
