Image Filters are very popular these days and this is because of the mobile apps. The filters on such apps and other online editors are not customizable. They are mostly templates which you can apply in one click and that’s it. But, this editor has advanced filters which allow you to create fully custom filters for your image. It has Greyscale, Sepia, Invert, Blur, Sharpen, and Emboss filters which you can mix with other available options.
Remove White and Gradient Transparency are two fully customizable filters which allow you to change their threshold, distance, and value. Then, you can adjust the Brightness, Noise, Pixelate, Color Filter to reflect your imagination on the canvas. Furthermore, there are tint, multiply, and blend options which you can use with any filter option for more flexibility.
Image Masking is a feature that we rarely see in such portable editors. This editor has it and it does a really good job. In order to use this feature, first, you have to load a background image to the canvas. Then, go to the Mask Image tool (second last on the toolbar) and load the mask image. This tool adds the mask image on top of the background where you can resize it as per your needs. Once done, simply apply the image mask and there you have a perfect image mask image.
