Filters & Frames.
In FX Photo Studio there are 159 photo effects, divided into 20 categories. Effects are shown in the bottom menu as thumbnails. You can access the list of categories by clicking on the dropdown button "All Effects". Thumbnails preview how effects will look on the image. To see the effect on the picture itself, click on the thumbnail.
Similarly to photo effects in Luminar, in FX Photo Studio you can apply as many effects on one image as you like, thus creating unique combinations, which can then be saved to presets. Every photo effect can be adjusted: use the toolbar in the right part of the screen to customize the effect. To have a random effect applied on the image click on the dice icon.
Apart from the predefined effects, you can edit images with a variety of customizable editing options (hue, levels, brightness, shadows, etc). To access the image editing category, click on the "Adjust" icon in the top right corner of the screen.
There are 41 frame options, divided into 4 categories. Frame effects are shown in the bottom menu as thumbnails. You can access the list of frame categories by clicking on the dropdown button “All Frames”. Thumbnails preview how frames will look on the image. To see the frame of the picture itself, click on the thumbnail.
Apart from the standard application of the frame, you can alter each individual frame’s width to change the effect of the frame. You can also use the dice icon to get a random frame applied to your image to test it out. There is also a search function that you can use to narrow down your search, or a one-click frame cancellation button to if you choose to not have a frame afterall.
FX Photo Studio CK presets.
FX Photo Studio lets you mix effects, thus creating custom looks and photo filters for your images. These combinations can be saved to presets and then applied on other images with one click.
Effects that are used more often than others can be added to favorites. This is done by clicking a star on the effect thumbnail. The star will become yellow, meaning that the effect had been added to favorites. To access the effects go to the “favorites” sub-category (bottom toolbar).
