How do I insert a Photo Filter?

Photo Filters Presets

Photo filter presets allow you to instantly apply professional photo effects to your photos. The presets are provided in the Online Content Catalog under Components > Image Resources > Photo Filter Presets. You can apply them directly from the Content Catalog by selecting the photo and then choosing Insert->From Content Catalog. Navigate to the Photo Filter Presets folder and select to import the one you want to try.

Below are are just a few examples of available effects, applied to the same photo for comparison.

Using presets from the Local Designs Gallery

Once you’ve imported one preset, you can optionally download all the presets to your Local Designs Gallery, for easier access. Right click on the Components > Image Resources > Photo Filter Presets folder in the gallery and choose Download All. Re-open the folder and now you can drag and drop any of the effects onto your photos, or select the target photo and double click an effect in the gallery.

Replacing photos and removing presets

You can remove the preset applied to a photo by simply right-clicking on it and choosing Remove Photo Filter.

When you replace an image with a new one (using drag and drop from Explorer or right-click Replace photo...) any preset effect applied to the image is also applied to your new image.

Filter presets and photo edits

Most of the preset filter effects modify the image by adjusting the same settings that you see in the Photo Tool or Levels tool. Therefore remember that applying an effect may remove any photo enhancements you have applied manually beforehand, using the Photo Tool. Similarly if you apply a preset filter and later adjust the settings in the Photo Tool, if you later remove the preset it may also remove your enhancements.

Applying presets to your photo and then examinining the settings in the Photo Tool and Levels Tool is a great way to learn about the capabilities of the Photo Tool.
