Question regarding Depth of Field Filter:

When resizing a document, the Depth of Field Filter does not seem to scale. The only way I have found to apply this is to scale the original image and then apply the Depth of Field Filter. Am I missing something or is this a feature not yet implemented?

Depends on which one you used here, when you used the Depth of Field "Live Filter" this one adds the filter effect as a layer mask and thus you would have to flatten/combine the layer and it's mask first before resizing the document. - If you use instead the one from the "Filter -> Unsharpness" submenu it works directly the usual way you know from Photoshop here.

That has to be a bug.


If you nest the blur and resize the parent image it works as expected.


If you resize the document it goes wrong.

Windows PCs. Photo and Designer, latest non-beta versions.
