- AAA BLENDER Go to Download and Documentation page! UPDATED 30-Oct-2009
This filter allows you to open a mask, texture, grunge, or paint layer and blend it with your image in any of 30 blend modes.
You can even use it to simulate layers by blending it with the original or a modified version of the image you are editing.
It's quick and easy!
Please follow the installation instructions carefully. Unlike the other AAA filters, this one requires a dll file to work,
and it must be in the same folder as the filter itself. The filter will be much easier to use if you keep your mask, grunge,
texture, and paint files in subfolders in your AAA folder.
