Gravit Designer is packed with a wealthy variety of vector and raster effects that you can use to turn your images into a piece of art or just create what you are up to.
To apply an effect in Gravit you need to locate the Effects Panel at the bottom of the Inspector Panel.
Most popular effects are imminent for you directly from the Effects Panel. Select an object and click on one of the four popular effects to apply it.
This way you can apply any of these effects:
Use the last menu item in this list called More to bring up a pop-up menu with more effects.
You can also access the same pop-up menu by clicking on the tiny Plus icon opposite to the effect label on the top-right of the Effects Panel.
Effects Popup Menu
The pop-up menu contains over 35 effects(2) arranged into different categories. You can select the category from the drop-down menu(1) on top.
There are six main categories:
There is also a category for the most used effects(7).
Once an effect has been applied you can modify some of its attributes from the interface under the Effects Panel.
Every effect has its own unique set of attributes, thus you will use sliders, text fields, color pickers, and radio buttons to edit the effect.
When you hover an applied effect, some options are shown. One of them is the Trashcan icon, which can be used to delete the effect.
Toggle the Visibility of the Effect
Another option that is shown on hover is Toggle Visibility. Instead of deleting the effect permanently, you can temporarily switch it off by clicking this icon.
When you are ready to bring it back click the eyeball icon again.
Scope of the Effect
By default, the effect is applied to the whole object. You can choose whether to apply it to the fill, border, or the whole element on the context menu that is shown with a right-click on the effect.
In this context-menu, it’s also possible to copy the effect so it can be pasted on the same or other elements on the canvas.
You can add unlimited effects on any object. For some effects, changing the stacking order influences the appearance of the final result. For example, changing the order of multiple shadows:
To rearrange effects:
- Hover over the effect name

To quickly delete an effect:
- Drag the effect outside to the inspector panel until the delete icon appears
- Release the mouse
