How to create a Noir effect
When editing a photo, you have hundreds of different styles and inspirations to choose from. In fact, it can be pretty intimidating for someone just starting out in the photo editing space. In this blog, we will be taking a look at how to create a Noir effect of your clicks using the Urban Jungle Photo Editor.
Let us begin by first selecting a template landscape that we will be working with. You can choose any picture you have taken as a landscape for this project.
Let’s add an object to this landscape. We will import an ominous-looking elephant walking towards the camera.
Once we have added an object, let us first start by editing the object. Since we are doing a Noir effect, we will first reduce the saturation of the elephant to remove its color. We can further play around with gamma and brightness to get the perfect look we want from our Noir elephant.
After we have completed the look of the elephant, we will now focus on the street behind him. We can hide the elephant for now using the layer menu. Urban Jungle Photo editor has a whole section on Black and White filters. We will just select a pre-made filter using this menu. You can also instead play around with the filter tools to customize the filter looks.
For this project, let us go with the Silver B&W filter. It gives a metallic look and will fit nicely with our elephant. Once you are satisfied with how your landscape looks, you can bring back all your objects using the layer menu.
