How do I add photo filters?

You can add trendy photo filters to any photo from our image library or any photo you upload to give your design some artistic flair. Here’s how:

01. Select a photo

Click on a photo element to select and open its edit menu then press the Filter button on the left-hand side of the edit menu to open the filter options. 

02. Choose a filter

Along the top of the filter menu you’ll see several preconfigured Photo filters to choose from, such as “Cali,” “Drama,” “Epic,” and more. Each filter has a preview of what your photo will look like, and you can click the preview to apply the filter to your photo. Click the scroll arrows on either side of the preview images to scroll through more photo filters to choose from. 

03. Adjust your filter

You can customize the preconfigured filters such as its Brightness and Contrast. To do so, click on the Advanced options arrow. There’s an endless variety of looks you can create by adjusting these sliders. For more information on how to use these sliders to help boost your designs, check out our Design School blog

04. Change to Normal

After applying photo filters or adjusting the filter sliders, you can revert back to your original photo by clicking on the very first photo filter on the left, named “Normal.” This will restore all of the filters to zero, and bring the photo element back to its original state.

05. Copy filter code

If you create a truly inspiring photo filter you’d like to save for later or apply to other elements, you can save all your slider configurations by copying the element’s Filter code. To find the filter code, open the filter menu and click on the advanced options arrow. Click on the box marked “Filter code #” at the bottom to highlight the code, then press Ctrl/Command + C to copy it.

06. Paste filter code

To apply the filter code to other elements, open up the filter menu in the same way, click on the “Filter code #” box, and then press Ctrl/Command + V to paste the code into the element.
