the Levels (Individual Controls) effect, which allows you to adjust
all color channels and the composite at the same time. The real
advantage of this is that you can connect these properties to
expressions (Fig. 6.94).
The Photo Filter Effect
The Photo Filter effect is another effect that has its roots in
Photoshop. This effect mimics the physical fi lters that are put on
the end of camera lenses to give a tint to photos. Typically, these
tints come in the form of warm tints (orange) or cool tints (blue),
but they can be in any color. To all intents and purposes, the
Photo Filter effect simply applies a color tint to an image.
Open the Photo Filter.aep project from the Chapter 6 folder
of the exercise fi les if you'd like to go along with me. This project
contains a photo I took of a lioness, and it's a little on the warm
side, meaning that it is tinted in warm colors like yellow, orange,
or red (Fig. 6.95).
Apply the Photo Filter effect to this image. The default results
are so subtle that they're almost imperceptible. I think this is
Adobe's way of hinting that we should use this effect to create sub-
tle changes. I couldn't agree more. But just so we can see the differ-
ence in the screenshots here in this topic, let's increase the Density
value, which is somewhat like the opacity value for this effect.
Increasing the value to a relatively high 75%, makes this footage
look like a photo taken in the 70's (Fig. 6.96).
