Preview of New Filters, Borders

I’ve been working hard on creating a whole new lineup of filters and I’m happy to share with you guys a preview of all that hard work!

I literally hand-built every single one of these filters from scratch and I’m really happy with the results. Again, the goal of this version is to give the user a bunch of options of baseline filters to choose from and when version 2.0 releases I may pare these down a bit as we’ll have more advanced editing controls that will make the number of baseline filters excessive.

But, of course, I’m open to hearing from the community and seeing how you guys respond to the choices – heck, we may end up keeping them all, who knows (you tell me!)?

To be clear, how I numbered the filters was by the foundational “effect” that was dominant in that iteration. So, BW1, BW2, BW3 refers to “Black and White” and ST1, ST2, ST3 refers to a “Saturation”-based effect.

The dominant master effects key is as follows:

  • Black and White
  • Contrast
  • Brightness
  • Exposure
  • Saturation
  • Monochrome
  • Blue
  • Haze
  • Red
  • Green
  • Shadow
  • Yellow
  • “Experimental”

If you’re anything like me then you may often times use the same filter over and over and over again (for whatever reason) and hopefully the new alpha-numeric system will help you do that more consistently and with some greater speed.

In addition, I’ve changed the borders and frames functionality to showcase black and white options for every filter. I plan on adding a much more robust option for borders and frames in version 2.0, but for now I think this is acceptable.

Here are some screenshots in addition to the video above:

Let me know your thoughts! I hope to submit this after a few days of testing and QA next week, hopefully Monday.

Have a fun Halloween and make sure to take tons of Pressgram photos!
