Example settings for filter parameters
(1) The figure below shows an example filter parameters for edge
enhancement.
With this example, the brightness of the image will stay as the original,
since the sum of the five values is 100 as same as the value of Scale.
Adding values to the rest of four diagonal corners will extend the area that
affects the target pixel.
The difference between the center and its neighbors is greater, the effect
will enhance further.
Match the Scale value to a sum of the values entered in the 3x3 text box to
maintain the brightness of the current image.
(2) The figure below shows an example filter parameters for blurred edge.
With this example, the brightness of the image will stay as the original,
since the sum of the five values is 100 as same as the value of Scale.
Adding values to the rest of four diagonal corners will extend the area that
affects the target pixel.
The difference between the center and its neighbors is less, the effect will
enhance further.
Match the Scale value to a sum of the values entered in the 3x3 text box to
maintain the brightness of the current image.
