How To Use Photo Filters

Transform a mundane image into a vibrant image by adding filter effects to your composition. Image filters alter the appearance of a photo by running a software routine that changes the colors of the pixels that make up the image. Change the mood or feel, create lighting effects, or spice up your pictures with a quick edit. Check out the guide below to learn how to use photo filters.

Whether you are a novice or an experienced photographer, you can experiment in Corel PaintShop Pro with effects that are inspired by different types of camera film and filters. You can choose from a list of preset film effects, called Film Looks, or you can choose from a list of preset filter effects, called Creative Filters. You can also combine a film effect with a filter effect to create a unique style.
