#3 Top 3 material
We could all use a trip these days, amarite? But until that’s feasible how about a trip to the Filters Library. Here you’ll find over 100+ different filters to turn your next selfie to top 3 material. For this specific edit we used a Filter from the Portland Filter Pack.
You’ll find 4 incredible Filters ready to fulfill all your PNW photo vibes dreams. What the Portland Filter Pack does perfectly is capture sunset lighting in all four seasons. For our top 3 pic we used PDX-3 with a slight decrease.
And BAM just like that you’ve got yourself a gorgeous, sundrenched creation perfect for a bronze medal pic.
#2 You spin me right round baby
Now, we love a two-for- one when it comes to tips and tricks. This silver medal Goddess delivers a one-two punch of a gorgeous selfie like you wouldn’t believe. It starts with…
Once you’ve selected your Background it’s important to make some minor edits to make your editing backdrop look as realistic as possible. You can use the Blend feature to make your original image match up to your Background’s color palette. You can use the Edge option to shave off the little remnants of the original image, and you can use the Blur option to create some distance between your focal points and the Background. Sometimes you end up with a little more than you bargained for. You can tap the white button with the finger on the left side of your image to manually select the surfaces you do and do not want on your image.
Once you’ve settled in to your picture’s new habitat you can scroll on over to the Prism Tool. The Prism Tool creates a super cool lens effect that gives your pic a spinning motion and a little color all while keeping the focus the center of this universe.
#1 Bubble Pop Electric
In the Filter Library you’ll find the Utrapop Filter Pack. A group of 5 edgy Filters all with super unique, colorful lens flares, and even a vintage film border. You can choose between each one and adjust the effect by sliding the center cursor from right to left.
All 5 Ultrapop Filters are incredibly versatile and unique in their own way.
For this particular edit our designers worked with ULT-5. A cool burst of fresh air with a slight flare. Adjusting the Filter to be a little less saturated is sometimes all the pic needs to be top 3 gold standard.
