      Effect:Maximum
      Category:Color Filter
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Maximum Effect takes the maximum values of the selected color channels between Color 1 and Color 2. In this Effect, each select channel from Color 1 is compared with the same channel from Color 2. Which ever has the higher value is used as that channels color.

       
      Options: The Maximum Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Maximum Red:When set to a Green Check Mark, the Red Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Red Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new Red Channel.
      Maximum Green:When set to a Green Check Mark, the Green Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Green Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new Green Channel.
      Maximum Blue:When set to a Blue Check Mark, the Blue Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Blue Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new Blue Channel.
      Maximum Alpha:When set to a Alpha Check Mark, the Alpha Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Alpha Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new Alpha Channel.
      Output Color 1:By default this is set to REPLACE which means that the set color will be output to Color 1. You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.
      Output Color 2:By default this is set to IGNORE which means that the Color 2 will be ignored (the original Color 2 will be kept). You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.

      Example: To show the Maximum Effect we will take our Arches National Park image and load it into Slot 1 using the Texture Effect. In Slot 2 we have our Clouds, Marble, and Granite Effect with default values but Output Color 1 set to Ignore and Output Color 2 set to Replace.

      The following shows our two source images:

      In Slot 3 we place our Maximum Effect with default values. The resulting image looks like this:

      Note that since the Arches photo has brightness most everywhere, only the brightest portions of the Clouds Effect were higher than the Arches.
