This filter reads an image and sets up a grid of smaller images. The smaller images are used to repaint the original image in an abstract way. The Grid Width and Grid Height should be the same ratio as the original image. If it is square for instance, 3x3 works well. The smaller images are used as randomized particles to Bomber+. Grid Shape is Circle, Square, Pentagon, Random. Alpha Mode is Orginal Image, Light Mask, Dark Mask. If the image is portrait or landscape, the Portrait/Landscape checkbox must be checked for proper results. You can find some alphabetic test grids at: http://duim.com/filterforge-DRVG/grids/ Username: filter Password: forge
