Special Effect 2: Enhance Colors And Add Warmth

photo. The names of some of the filters are shown on the menu shown in Figure 41.5.

The dairy farm photo shown in Figure 41.6 was changed into the one shown in Figure 41.7 by applying two filters, making a minor adjustment with Levels, and then applying the Unsharp Mask.

Figure 41.8 shows the dialog box for the Brilliance/ Warmth filter, which was used to strengthen the golden glow of sunset. Sliders control both Brilliance and Warmth. To increase the saturation of the blue sky, the Graduated 201h (Sky Blue) filter was used. Figure 41.9 shows the dialog box for that filter. This filter offers four sliders that allow control over the rotation of the horizon, the opacity of the blue filter, where the blue color begins to blend, and the strength of the blend. This gives you far more control than you have with traditional filters that fit on camera lenses.
