Filter controls

Color Filter

Six Color Filters act similar to glass filters that are placed in front of a camera lens. Neutral, red, orange, yellow, green and blue. Each filter will brighten that specific color and darken the opposite color on the color spectrum.

Luminance

Color sliders control the brightness of each relative color as it is converted from color to black and white.

Saturation

Each Color slider will introduce the respective color that was present within the original color image back into the black and white image.

Exposure

Controls the overall luminance value throughout the image. Adding exposure brightens the image while removing exposure darkens the image.

Contrast

Controls the differences in the relationships of tonal values. Adding contrast increases the difference between the highlights, midtones, and shadows. Removing contrast decreases the difference between these tonal values, “flattening” these relationships.

Highlights

Luminance control of the brighter values in the image, basically affecting the tones on the right side of the histogram independently from the darker values.

Shadows

Luminance control of the darker values in the image, basically affects the tones on the left side of the histogram independently from the brighter values.

Whites

Very specific luminance control over the brightest values within the image, really only affecting the tones that lie within the far right of the histogram.

Blacks

Very specific luminance control over the darkest values within the image, really only affecting the tones that lie within the far left of the histogram.

Clarity

Allows users to increase the contrast in the midtones introducing more depth between the relationships of values that lie in the middle of the histogram.

Details

Increases image details globally or in highlights and shadows.
