HyperTyle is a sophisticated filter plugin for generating texture, surface, paint, erosion, transparency, edge, frame and shadow effects. These main effects are based on seamless textures, so there are unlimited variations possible. Additionally there are also zoom, rotation, metal, chrome, pop-art, warp, mirror, blur, noise, blending and other secondary effects which can be simultaneously applied to the seamless texture which is used for the main effect. So up to 20 different effects can be applied at the same time without leaving the plugin dialog.
The HyperTyle dialog consists of a large preview on the left side and a tab sheet control with all filter parameters on the right side. There are 15 dialog skins to choose from. HyperTyle is fairly easy and intuitive to use. For beginners there's even a Tutorial Mode which displays explanations and tips when the mouse pointer moves over a control. A preset feature lets you save effect settings and reuse them later. More than 110 useful preset files are already delivered with HyperTyle.
The Texture main
effect lets you fill up an image or image areas with seamless
This is useful, e.g. for creating background images at a preferred
size, for giving logos a texture look or for applying a new
texture to parts of a graphics. While doing this you can rotate,
zoom, shift, cut or stretch the tiled texture or manipulate
it in various other ways. You can even make non-seamless textures
seamless with the provided mirror options. Twenty different
blending effects can be used to melt the texture with your image.
Surface main effect gives your graphics a new surface
touch. For example you can apply the surface of oil paintings,
wood, metal, water, water drops and many other materials to
your image. HyperTyle lets you control light angle, surface
height and intensity of the new surface as well as soften or
sharpen the surface with the controls from the Adjust tab sheet.
two Paint main effects can turn your images into paintings
or distort them in many other ways. You can use the provided
painting textures to make your photos look like a painting from
Van Gogh or Monet. The intensity and direction of the painting
effect can be controlled as well as its softness or granularity
when using the sliders from other tab sheets. The Paint effects
can also be used to modify the transparency of an image layer.
three Erosion main effects add eroded or dusty looks
to your graphics. They let you adjust the erosion threshold
and the erosion border. Additionally you can use the secondary
effects like fusion, warp, blur and contrast to influence the
erosion effect. The Erosion effect can be used to create letters
that look really interesting, to strip off parts of a transparency
mask or to make parts of a graphic look old and worn-out.
Edge main effects let you frame your image with the help
of textures. Three different shapes are available: Circle, Ellipse
and Rectangle. The Edge Modes include Rough, Soft, Organic,
Organic Color and Textured. HyperTyle lets you control the edge
size, the edge position by right clicking on the preview, the
size of the transition area, the width of the textured border,
the background color and many more. Inverting the edge effect
and making it transparent is also possible. A lot of edge variations
can be achieved by using the secondary effect controls.
Shadow main effect uses a texture to add depths or highlights
to an image. This can add atmosphere to your photos or make
uniform areas of your graphics more interesting. When applying
it to image layers it can fade or amplify the transparency mask
according to the used texture.
The No Texture main effect simply lets you apply all secondary effects without using a texture. So you can apply the metal, chrome, pop-art, warp, mirror and other effects directly to the image.
