About Lens Tool

Lens Tool is derived from the distortion effect of the fisheye lens, using a special algorithm to make the partial image more prominent, in order to achieve a more exaggerated visual center. The strong sense of perspective and exaggerated distortion must be particularly enjoyable after you see it.

1Select the lens tool

Move your mouse button over the main ribbon bar of this banner maker program, then go to "Drawing" or "Path" category and then find "Lens Tool" toolbar button, just click it.

2Click to select object

At the same time, the banner program only allows the lens tool is applied for an object. It means that if there are multiple objects switched from other states, only the last object is continuously selected for relaying and the next operation. If no object is currently selected, you need to select it by clicking the left mouse button over the opaque portion of the object.

When the object is selected, it is surrounded by a dotted line.

The shape of the mouse becomes a magnifying glass throughout the Lens transformation, moves it to the selected object, then clicks the left mouse button and keeps it pressed, moving the mouse. You will find that the drawing object constantly changes its shape as the mouse moves: the closer it is to the mouse, the more prominent it is. The opposite is reversed.

The Lens tool also provides options to adjust its operating parameters. After finding the "Lens Tool" button on the toolbar, click on the arrow in the button and Banner Maker will pop up a box. It contains the following content:

Lens Tool Options

  • Radius: The range affected by the Lens tool is the circle centered at the mouse position. This parameter is used to determine the radius of the circle, in pixels.
  • Scale: Decide how much the object will be enlarged or reduced during the Lens transformation. The larger the value, the larger the object will become.
