Filters are an important tool to create digital art with Urban Jungle Photo editor. Today’s blog post will be the final part of the series covering the filter tools. We can access the filter menu by touching the filters tab at the bottom.
The clarity tool allows us to increase the local contrast, which means to separate color tones on a smaller level. This makes the image appear more sharper, we can increase clarity by moving the slider to the right.
The negative tool, as the name suggests, reverses the image colors. So the red areas will appear cyan, green areas will appear magenta, and blues areas will appear yellow, and vice versa. This will make the image look as a total inversion of itself, the light areas will appear dark and the dark areas will appear light.
The edge blur tool simply allows us to put a blurring effect around the edges of the image. We can increase this effect by moving the slider towards the right.
Glare is caused when the light comes into contact with a highly reflective surface. One of the most common glares we observe is something called sun glare. This happens due to sunlight reflecting from the water droplets in the air. We can increase the intensity of the glare by moving the slider to our right.
The glare tool can be used to give us the illusion of a new source of light. For example, in our example here when we can use glare to make it look like our giraffe is standing under the street light.
This concludes our guide to working the filters in Urban Jungle Photo Editor.
If you are in a hurry and want to do a quick edit, remember Urban Jungle Photo Editor has dozens of pre-built filters that you can directly apply to the image. They are categorized into themes and are located below the filter tools.

There are so many creative filter options in Urban Jungle Photo Editor, we only touched the tip of the iceberg in Working the Filters Part One. In today’s blog post, we will dive further into the exciting customization options the filter menu gives us in Urban Jungle Photo Editor.
The Hue slider allows us to take control over how much red, blue, green, and yellow the color and shade of an image looks.
By sliding from left to right we are going from balanced hue (meaning all shades are equal in proportions to each other) to shades where different colors of the spectrum are dominant. In our example we have turned all the blues into more of an pinkish red, slide around to get a feel of the Hue controls.
Again, you will notice that the filters do not affect the layers, only the background image. Changing layer filters will be covered in a future blog.
Have you observed how objects appear different during sunset than they do during midday? This is because of something called color temperature. Different light sources can produce different colored light, we can control what kind of colored light is lighting our image by the ‘Temp’ option.
The tint of an image is exactly what it sounds like, this option adds a white or black layer over the image. Similar to how objects look from a tinted car window.
Urban Jungle Photo Editor has dozens of pre-built filters that you can directly apply to the image if you do not want to customize each option.
The filter slider allows us to control how much of the filter is applied. Take the steel filter in the below image, by sliding to full right we have applied 100% of the filter. If we want something less intense, we could only apply the filter at 70% and keep some of the original colors of the image.
The grain tool allows us to add a film grain effect into the image. This adds small granules like particles to the image, like they used to have in old films. This is perfect if you want to give the background a more vintage look.
The RGB split option offsets the red greens and blues in an image, similar to a sun glare effect. This filter gives the image a cool retro feel.
These were some of the many filter customization options that are at your disposal when using Urban Jungle Photo Editor. You can stay up to date on new upcoming filters and customization options by following us on Instagram and Twitter.
