|In this tutorial we will be going in depth on how to apply multiple effects to your image. We will also go over how to use the Ellipse tool.|
|Selecting Your First Effect|
|Select your first effect under the effects menu, we are going to be using Ethereal (A). This effect simulates a longer exposure with a soft lens and bright light source.|
|Using the Ellipse Tool|
|After you select the effect an ellipse will appear on screen over your image. This ellipse can be rotated by clicking and dragging over the lines when the double curved arrow appears (A).|
|You can move the ellipse by clicking and dragging in the center(A).|
|You can change the size of the ellipse by clicking and dragging on the tabs located at the top, bottom, left, and right of the ellipse (A).|
|Changing Cast Color|
|In some of the effects cast color is used to replace opacity in the effects menu (A). Cast color changes the opacity as well as intensity of the color chosen in the box next to the slider (B). For now this will remain white while the cast color will change to an opacity of 60.|
|Tonal range effects the range of colors affected by the ethereal effect. The higher the tonal range the higher the range of colors that gets affected. We are going to increase our tonal range to 20.|
|Brush Off Tool|
|As with many of our effects Ethereal has a brush - off tool represented by a red-colored brush (A). Simply use this to remove areas you don't wish the effect on (B).|
|Choosing the Second Effect|
|Choose your second effect from the effects menu. We are going to choose Mist (A). This will allow us to brush on a natural looking fog to the image.|
|Brushing On Mist|
|To add our mist we are going to select our brush on tool, which is a little different that our other effects in that it is red with a mist trail being brushed behind it (A). Simply click and brush over any areas you want to add mist to (B).|
|To remove the Mist effect from undesired areas use the brush-off tool which is represented by a red brush with a purple lens behind it (A). And brush in the area which you wish to remove the mist from (B).
|Mist Effect Controls|
|To adjust how our mist appears on the image we can change the settings in our Effect Control box (A). We can adjust the intensity and opacity of our mist by adjusting the Color control. Softness affects how feathered the mist is. Density controls how compacted the mist is rendered.
|Adding the Third Effect|
|Select your third effect from the effect menu. We are going to use Deepen Shadows which will allow us to selectively darken and deepen the shadows in the image for natural looking contrast and depth.|
|Using Deepen Shadows|
|Apply Deepen Shadows by selecting the Brush-On tool (A) and brushing over the desired area (B). In your Effect Controls Box, as with our other effects you can change your settings. Opacity changing how much the effect applies. Tonal Range affecting the color range the effect applies too. Fuzziness changes smoothness of the shadows when they apply. Shading increases the tonal depth of the shadows. Soften affects the feather of the effect.
|You can look to see what your image looked like before any time while using the software by simply clicking and holding down the Original button located at the top of the interface (A).
