Color Correction filters overview

The filters in the Color Correction category can be used in a number of ways. For example, you can set a mood by making an image sepia-colored. In addition, these filters can fix a problem with contrast, color, gamma, or brightness.

There are 17 Color Correction filters:

  • Brightness boosts or lowers the uniform brightness of an image.

  • Channel Mixer allows cross-mixing of red, green, blue, and alpha channels into one another.

  • Color Balance adjusts the relative balance of all three color channels of an image, allowing two images to be color-matched, for example.

  • Color Reduce reduces the full range of color in an image to two, three, or four colors.

  • Colorize substitutes the blacks and whites in an image with colors you select.

  • Contrast adjusts the difference between the lightest and darkest parts of an image.

  • Gamma adjusts the relative distribution of brightness in the midtones of an image.

  • Gradient Colorize uses each pixel’s color value to determine the application of a color value from a gradient.

  • Levels remaps the white and black points of an image.

  • Negative inverts color and brightness in an image.

  • OpenEXR Tone Map applies tone mapping to an OpenEXR image.
