Today’s blogpost will explain how to use the filters in the Urban Jungle Photo Editor. Filters come in the later part of the digital art creation process. By this time we will have set the scene with our landscapes and objects. Filters directly apply to the landscape, the objects remain unchanged. Let us use the landscape we created for our last blog post about moving objects as an example. Click on the Filters tab at the bottom to open the Filters menu.
Filters are further divided into sections by artistic styles like Vintage, Black & White and Neon, etc. Let us choose Kodak 1 by touching it.
You can see the filter is immediately applied to the background. Filter does not affect objects layers.
We can see there are more options above the filter templates like exposure, gamma, and contrast. These tools allow Urban Jungle Photo Editor users to take full control of how they want their background to look. Let us take a look at some of these tools.
Let’s start with exposure. Exposure changes how much light we want in the object. We can increase this effect by moving the slider towards the right and reduce it by moving the slider towards the left.
The gamma tool in simpler terms controls the brightness of each pixel. Thus by increasing gamma, the background will become more bright and white.
The contrast of an image is the difference in brightness of different colors that make up that image. By increasing contrast the image will have more bright colors.
The blur tool allows us to create a blur that starts from the edges, and creeps more towards the center of the image as we increase it via the slider
The saturation tool has a somewhat similar effect as the contrast tool on the image. Saturation controls the color intensity or purity. So by increasing saturation, all the colors will pop out more.
Vibrance also deals with colors, but the tool is very picky. Increasing vibrance only increases the intensity of muted colors while already saturated colors stay the same. This tool allows us to make those bland colors in the image become more prominent and look less washed out.
These are just some of the starting filter tools, we will be covering more tools in our future blogs.
