Blur Left, Blur Right, Blur Top, Blur Bottom - whether to apply blur effect in the left, right, top and bottom directions respectively.

Blur Type - the type of blur to apply. Possible options are Linear, Radial and Gaussian.

Glow Image Filter

The glow image filter lits the edges of the chart or gauge element it is applied to. The following customization options are available:

Color - controls the color of the glow effect.

Glow Type - the type of glow to apply to the object. Possible options are Inner and Outer

Original Opacity - A factor allowing you to fade out the original image leaving only the glow effect.

Blur Type - the type of blur to apply. Possible options are Linear, Radial and Gaussian.

Depth - The depth of the glow effect.

Lighting Image Filter

The lighting image filter applies a lighting effect on the image emulating a directional or positional light. The following customization options are available:

Diffuse Color -  the diffuse color emitted by the light source.

Light Source Type - the type of the light source. Possible options are - Directional and Positional.

Position - the position of the light source.

Shininess - the Shininess of the material used to cover the lit surface.

Specular Color - the specular color emitted by the light source. 

Surface Scale - a factor allowing you to scale the surface dimensions when using using a positional light source.

Bevel Depth - the depth of the light effect along the edged of the image.

Blur Type - the type of the light effect along the edges of the image. Possible options are Linear, Radial and Gaussian.

Bevel And Emboss Image Filter

Applies a bevel and emboss image filter on the on the image. The following customization options are available:

Bevel Type - controls the type of the bevel and emboss filter to apply. The following table lists the available options:

Outer Only pixels that lay outside the original image are modified by adding the contribution from the highlight and shadow images leaving the original image intact.
Emboss

Both pixels that lay inside and outside of the image are modified.

If the pixel is inside the original image the contribution of the highlight and shadow images are added to the original pixel.

If the pixel is outside the original the contribution from the highlight and shadow images is written to the
resulting image.

Pillow Emboss
