Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Browsing filters, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- Let's play with Filters a bit here.…I think they're kind of cool.…They're not Instagram level filters…where you have as many controls…as you do with Instagram for example,…but they still have some good capability.…Let's explore for ourselves.…We're gonna work with this image here,…and I'm gonna go over to Edit.…We had flipped the image earlier, when we were playing,…and, I guess, before we do too much more work on it,…I should make sure that's okay, you know,…there isn't any telltale type anywhere,…so I'm just gonna take my pointer,…go on that little boat right there,…and hit the "z" key, just zoom in,…and just take a look around.…
I think we're all right, so I'm gonna hit the "z" key again,…and let's move over to Filters.…Now, the Filters line up on the side here,…Mono, Tonal,…Noir, like film noir,…Fade, Chrome,…Process, Transfer, and Instant,…and, any time I wanna remove a Filter,…I just click on it again, takes it off.…
I'm sort of interested in this Transfer look.…I kinda like it, it feels like slide film or something,…
