Simple yet Special effect to optimize your photos

Maybe you once met the situation like this: want to add filter to photos, and the software you think of is Photoshop. No doubt, it’s also the best software I recommend. However, when you open the photo with PS, you find that it’s too hard to master for a beginner.
Right, I have a better method to make it! Most important thing, make sure you’ve get a Photo Collage Studio.
With the help of filter, you can optimize your photo just by some simple steps. The built-in filters are grouped in 15 categories. Those filters can soften an image; give it the appearance of depth or substance, or to add an organic look, etc.
Here are some short description.

3D Grid
Add grids to your photo, like those representing latitude and longitude. The larger size you choose, the fewer grids you’ll get. And the grid depth help to make the grids dark or light.

Color Tone
Wavelength of the light reflected or absorbed by an object. Normally the color tone is identified by its name like red, blue or green. The color tone option enables you to make a subtle color adjustment of an image.

Gamma measures the brightness of mid-tone values produced by a device (often a monitor). A higher gamma value yields an overall darker image.

Gaussian Blur
An image-softening effect utilizing a bell shaped Gaussian distribution to apply the softening effect. A "Gaussian" curve (a/k/a "bell curve") is a bell-shaped curve showing a distribution of probability associated with different values of a variant.

The Ribbon option turns an image a long object resembling a thin line.

The Splash option makes an image look like to be splashed by water.

The Threshold option converts grayscale or color images to high-contrast, black-and-white images.

Hue & Saturation
The Hue/Saturation option lets you adjust the hue, saturation, and lightness of the entire image or of individual color components in an image.
