I've been using this and it was all going okay. The edges would randomly go transparent. Lovely stuff.

But I tried it this morning and where the pic was supposed to go transparent, it warps the picture abit. :(

What's wrong? :(

I’ve never found that that filter particularly useful, so I haven’t messed with it very much.

I think it is designed to be used on objects in a picture rather than the entire picture.
“Lasso” some object in the picture such as the soldier and apply the filter to see what I mean.

It may even be better if that object is on a transparent layer above the main photo.

Yep thanks. :D:tup:

It seems the filter doesn't work if your distressing the extents of the pic.
I just added 2 to the size of the canvas and it worked. :)
