The Pinch effect distorts the image as if it had been pinched.

 

   

Settings
 
Name Default Description
Amount 50 %

The amount that the image should be pinched.

Extent 50 % How far the effect should extend.
Speed 3 There is a general speed versus quality tradeoff. Higher values produce faster results at the expense of quality.

 

   

Workings
 

The effect distorts the image as if it had been pinched.

 

   

Example
 

The following example images show the effect of a Pinch filter applied to a picture with different settings.

[C#]
void function() {
  using (Doc doc = new Doc()) {
    AddImagePage(doc, img3); // original image
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinch.jpg");
    using (ImageLayer layer = AddImagePage(doc, img3)) {
      using (EffectOperation effect = new EffectOperation("Pinch")) {
        effect.Apply(layer.PixMap);
      }
    }
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinchDefault.jpg");
    using (ImageLayer layer = AddImagePage(doc, img3)) {
      using (EffectOperation effect = new EffectOperation("Pinch")) {
        effect.Parameters["Amount"].Value = 75;
        effect.Apply(layer.PixMap);
      }
    }
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinchAmount75.jpg");
    using (ImageLayer layer = AddImagePage(doc, img3)) {
      using (EffectOperation effect = new EffectOperation("Pinch")) {
        effect.Parameters["Extent"].Value = 100;
        effect.Apply(layer.PixMap);
      }
    }
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinchExtent100.jpg");
  }
}

[Visual Basic]
Sub ...
  Using doc As New Doc()
    AddImagePage(doc, img3)
    ' original image
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinch.jpg")
    Using layer As ImageLayer = AddImagePage(doc, img3)
      Using effect As New EffectOperation("Pinch")
        effect.Apply(layer.PixMap)
      End Using
    End Using
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinchDefault.jpg")
    Using layer As ImageLayer = AddImagePage(doc, img3)
      Using effect As New EffectOperation("Pinch")
        effect.Parameters("Amount").Value = 75
        effect.Apply(layer.PixMap)
      End Using
    End Using
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinchAmount75.jpg")
    Using layer As ImageLayer = AddImagePage(doc, img3)
      Using effect As New EffectOperation("Pinch")
        effect.Parameters("Extent").Value = 100
        effect.Apply(layer.PixMap)
      End Using
    End Using
    doc.Rendering.Save("EffectPinchExtent100.jpg")
  End Using
End Sub

 


Original Image before Pinch


After Pinch with default settings


Amount = 75


Extent = 100
