    • Level

      This controls the number of levels(2-255). The total number of colors is the combination of these levels.

    The below sample image shows the posterized images in serveral levels. The first image that anchored left top of an image is posterized in 2 levels. A level to 2 will give 22(=4) colors: white, cyan, blue and black. As the level increase, so increase the number of the colors.
