明るさの最小値 フィルターは活性レイヤーもしくはその選択範囲の暗い部分を拡げ、 強調します。

For every image pixel, it brings the pixel Value (luminosity) into line with the lowest Value (the darkest) of the 8 neighboring pixels (3×3 matrix). So, a dark pixel is added around dark areas. An isolated pixel on a brighter background will be changed to a big pixel, composed of 9 pixels, and that will create some noise in the image.

In this image, the studied pixel has a red border and the studied 3×3 matrix has a green border. Thus when the pixel marked with I is inside the green border, the studied pixel turns to black.

A larger dark area will expand by one pixel in all directions:

フィルターを 3 回繰り返し適用しました。

On more complex images, dark areas are widened and enhanced the same, and somewhat pixelated. Here, the filter was applied 3 times:

もちろん背景がその上に描かれたものよりも暗ければ、 やがて背景色が画像全体を覆うことになるでしょう。
