Dilate (Maximum Rank) / Stylize Effects

Dilate (Maximum Rank)

The Dilate tool searches the area around each pixel, and replaces the current value with the brightest value found. Its counterpart is the Erode tool.

Like all PhotoDemon tools, a dedicated command bar allows you to save and load custom presets, randomize parameters, and reset to default values. Last-used settings are automatically saved and restored, and all changes provide a real-time preview (no click or mouse button release required).
