Thicken vs Dilate

Is there a difference between the Thicken and the Dilate methods of the Morphology function?

I'm doing this to pad my regions with 10px:

Code: Select all

image.Morphology(ImageMagick.MorphologyMethod.Dilate, ImageMagick.Kernel.Disk, "9.5", 1);
I tried to find the proper kernel to do a similar thing but haven't succeeded yet. I'm thinking that it may be faster.

Would it achieve the same results and would it be faster or am I losing my time?
