In previous blog posts, we looked at how to work the filters for our backgrounds in Urban Jungle Photo Editor. But what if we want to apply the same filter tools to our layers and objects, how does one go about doing that? Do not worry, as promised today’s blogpost will be diving deep into using filter tools on layers.
We select a new object and place it on top of our background, we see that the filter tools automatically appear above the bottom object menu.
Let us start with the opacity tool, this slider allows us to set the transparency of the Object/Layer. As we move the slider towards the right, the cheetah becomes more and more transparent. This is great for blending the object with its background.
The exposure tool controls the amount of white the object is exposed to, thus by increase it the object appears brighter. We can increase and decrease the exposure of an object to match that of the background, so the object does not look out of place for the environment.
Gamma for the object controls the brightness for each pixel, this has a somewhat similar effect to changing the exposure of the image. We can even make the object full white by sliding the slider to maximum.
The contrast tool allows us to make the object pop out more, it controls the brightness of different colors of the object. By increasing contrast, the object’s color appears more intense.
The saturation tool as the name suggests increase or decrease the saturation of colors of the object. The saturation tool allows us to control the intensity or purity of those colors. By decreasing it like shown below, we can have a black and white cheetah with a hint of its previous colors.
