Paste FX Layer Effect not working 100%


Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm expecting too much, but when I copy a FX and then do a Paste FX command, I think the pasted FX should have the same values as what I copied. I have the FX set to blur 30%, opacity 70%. Creating a style seems to be more consistent, but it's also numerically off each time its applied.

I presume the second one was your original, and the first one was the pasted result?

If so, looks like the copy rounded the radius.

Nope. The first is the original, the second is the pasted FX. There's no consistency for what the radius figure will be wether pasted or applied as a style. It's usually close like within 20.

I think AFPub is trying to match a blur based on object size that the FX is applied to. Applied to a smaller image and the radius is smaller, although I cannot say this is true consistently.

I did a test and I think my conclusion about how AFPub works (or more likely how AFPhoto works) is true. I placed two version of the same photo on my page. One is small and one is large, both have different resolutions. I applied my Layer FX style which was saved as 30px rad. blur and 70% opacity to both images. The results indicate that the layer effect is being adjusted so the end results look similar with images at different sizes and resolutions. The opacity stays the same always at 70%, but the blur radius changes. In this case the small image results in a 3.7 px rad. blur, and the large image results in a 28.3 px rad. blur. After preforming this test and getting a better understanding of how this works, I now believe AFPub is managing this correctly.

I have attached the test file.
