How To Make A Photo Effects In inPixio Photo Editor

■ On the right-hand tabs, click Effects to display the associated modules.

Color Balance

All colors can be “counterbalanced” by their complementary color; adjusting color balance lets you give a photo a natural rendering for instance, or on the contrary create special effects.

  1. Click the Color Balance
  2. Select the option matching the degree of precision you wish to apply to setting. Use the Hue slider or click directly on the chromatic wheel to choose and adjust the color.

Global: to apply the same hue to the whole image then adjust the intensity of this hue with the saturation slider.

Split Toning: to apply a progressive effect depending on luminosity (Shadows or Highlights).

Three-Way: to apply a selective setting (Shadows, Medium Tones, Highlights)..

 

 

1. Check the Preserve Luminosity box to disable modification of the luminosity values in the image when modifying a color.

2. To save the hue applied to your photo, click the Save

Creative Blur

You can apply a miniature rendering to elements of a photo with the creative retouching tools:

  1. Click the Creative Blur module then Linear blur: this places a sharp linear area on the photo.
  2. You can move or redefine the size of this area using the markers.
  3. Adjust the settings of your linear blur:
    • Use the Midpoint slider to define the width of the sharp area
    • Move the Amount slider to adjust the degree of zoom around the sharp area: move it right if you want to intensify the blur around the sharp area, or left to attenuate it.

 

 

  1. To save the model rendering created on your photo, click the Save

You can restore depth of field on a photo to highlight the essentials.

  1. Click the Creative Blur module then Radial blur: by default, this places a sharp circular area in the photo.
  2. You can move or redefine the size of this area using the markers.
  3. Adjust the settings of your radial blur:
    • Use the Feather slider to determine the width of the gradient between the blurred and sharp areas of the photo. The higher the values, the more gradual the gradient between the blur red and sharp areas of the photo becomes.
  • Move the Amount slider to adjust the degree of zoom around the sharp area: move it right if you want to intensify the blur around the sharp area, or left to attenuate it. If you move the Amount slider completely to the left (0%), the blur is removed.

 

 

  1. To save the restored depth of field applied to your photo, click the Save

  1. Click the Film Grain
  2. Use the Amount setting to increase or reduce grain on your photo.

Vignetting

You can give your photo an artistic and flattering look with the vignetting process. Vignetting darkens the corners of a photo.

  1. Click the Vignetting
  2. Use the setting bars to create a vignetting effect:
    • Use the Midpoint slider to determine how far from the center of the photo the vignetting starts, move it right to constrain vignetting, or left to produce vignetting in the center of the photo.
    • Move the Feather slider to set the level of gradient between the vignetting color and the color of the photo; move it right to achieve a progressive gradient, or left to reduce the gradient effect. (The Midpoint and Feather options are enabled if you move the Amount)
  3. To save the vignetting, click the Save
