Introducing “feather”

Hello again. Today we have a new option for the selection. Remember the “selection”? This is when you select a part of your photo by clicking into the photo and dragging the mouse elsewhere. The area covered by your dragging movement is highlighted and hereinafter called “the selection”.

Until now, applying special effects to parts of the photo gave not-so-nice results like this:

This is where our new feature comes in. It is called “feather” and it is for softening the edges of the selection. The same effect applied with a feather of “100” looks like this:

Charcoal with feather 100

I think the result speaks for itself. Here is another example, first without feather, secondly with feather:

The feather is available for sharpen, blur/soften tools, special effects and color effects, and is found in the bottom area of the tool windows:

Happy phixing!
