Specifies the size of the fragments.
Indicates the random placement of the fragments.
When you apply the Stained Glass effect to an image, ACDSee 12 places the fragments randomly. This makes the effect different every time you apply the filter. You can define a specific random seed to generate identical fragment patterns.
To generate a new random seed, click Random Seed.
