Dilate Image (vuo.image.dilate)

Distorts the image by expanding or shrinking bright areas.

This node applies a morphological dilation (or erosion) filter to the input image. For each pixel in the output image, nearby pixels (determined by the Shape and Radius) are examined, and either the brightest (dilation) or darkest (erosion) component is chosen.

This filter is useful for filling in holes in grayscale image masks, adding an outline to text, or removing overblown highlights or noise from a photograph.
