Abstractor takes information of your image channels, using additional patterns and several noise types. It warps, shifts, and strews colors and shapes over your image. You can use both random structures and regular patterns to transform pictures. Feel free to use the randomizer, especially as the setting of the parameters requires some experience. You are able to create some strange and interesting looks of your pictures.
