High Key

Before After

Enables you to simulate the look of a high key photo, with uniformly light tones and low contrast. This filter is also helpful to enhance images that were shot as high key images.

 

Filter Settings Panel Description

Glow: Controls the degree of glow added around objects from the Standard High Key effect.
Standard High Key: Adds a high key effect uniformly to the entire image.
Dynamic High Key: Adds a unique high key effect that changes based on the color and tonality of the original object. This control lightens darker objects more than light objects.
Saturation: Controls the overall vibrancy of colors throughout your photo.
Blacks: Enables you to emphasize the darkest objects in your photo and ensure some black tones are present, a crucial component in a high key image.
Contrast: Controls the overall contrast of your photo.
