This filter repeats selected areas of the image in a way that makes them recede towards the background. The settings control which parts of the image get preserved.If Luminance Priority is checked the layers will be blended using the darken mode if Darken is checked otherwise the lighten mode. The smoothing and margin controls can be used to counteract striping, their effectiveness depends on how the other controls are set.
