Filter Oilify applied


This filter makes the image look like an oil painting. The Mask size controls the outcome: a high value gives the image less detail, as if you had used a larger brush.

[Tip] Tip

The GIMPressionist filter can produce similar effects, but allows a much wider variety of options.

Oilify filter options

Mask size

Mask Size selects the size of the brush mask used to paint the oily render. Larger values here produce an oilier render.

Use mask-size map

You may use a mask-size map to control Mask size partially. Mask size is reduced accordings to darkness in each pixel of the map image. You can select a map image among the current opened images of the same size as the source image.

Exponent

Exponent selects density of the brush mask used to paint the oily render.

Use exponent map

You may use an exponent map to control density of brush touch partially. Density is reduced accordings to darkness in each pixel of the map image. You can select a map image among the current opened images of the same size as the source image.

Use intensity algorithm

Use intensity algorithm changes the mode of operation to help preserve detail and coloring.
