Noise filter not working

Recommended Posts

I tried creating a 50% gray layer set to soft light and then applying 50% Gaussian monochrome noise, but it did not show up at all. Even set to 100%, nothing.

Did you rasterize the layer before applying the noise?

Hi wgphoto

 

This seems to be working fine for me in general here. What zoom level are viewing the image at? The noise has a dynamic preview so you may need to zoom into the image to see how the filter will apply. If this not the case would you be able to give i bit more information about your process such as image type, colour space, any opacity settings iPad specs etc.

 

Cheers

Hi wgphoto,

As verysame as indicated, you need to ensure you are applying the filter to a raster layer rather than vector one. Alternatively you can click the 'Lightning' icon on the Adjustment to convert it to a live filter. This can then be placed above your vector layer and you should see the noise. See attached screenshot.

Maybe I'm not getting the process. In the Mac version, I create a new pixel layer, fill it with 50% gray and apply noise to the layer. Then I set the blend mode of that layer. In the iPad version, I'm assuming new fill layer is actually new vector layer. This should change to match desktop version to avoid confusion. What is the proper order of doing this in iPad version as there does not seem to be a fill command that I can see. I don't seem to have that opacity slider, so I'm obviously doing something wrong.

The Opacity slider appears if you make it a Live Filter (by clicking the lightning button). However I've just tried it after filling a pixel layer with grey and it works. I would double check your pixel layer is selected when applying the noise. I will record a video to show you the process I used from interpreting what you've done. I think I will also need to see a screenshot of your Layers Studio as well.

Thank you, the video was very helpful. I've never used the paint bucket tool in the desktop version, but a fill command, so that's where the disconnect was. As it happens, I found a workaround between my last post and this one. I created a fill layer, changed it to 50% gray, then rasterized it and applied noise. I like your way better, but maybe a fill command would be handy to bring further parity to the desktop version. Great work on initial release and subsequent questions and such.
