General Fuzziness macro

Recommended Posts

I was prompted to create this macro by a recent posting asking about haziness as result of the output of an aircraft engine. My initial efforts were also trying to emulate the effects of hammered glass.

Here is a macro that creates a general fuzziness effect which could possibly be used in the contexts mentioned above. Fuzziness is a category containing just one macro: General Fuzziness.

There are three parameters:

  • Wavelength controls the number of cells across the image.
  • Noisiness controls the amount of random noise applied to the cell sizes.
  • Amplitude controls the overall intensity of the effect.

Here is an example as applied to an image of a Sea Aster flower:

With the parameters at half strength:

and with the parameters at full strength.

I would envisage that you would use this effect on just part of an image.
