A Color Story Tips: Filter Stacking!!

By on August 22, 2016 in Uncategorized

Filter stacking with A Color StoryOne of the big reasons we opted against the VSCO or Instagram model of filtering that doesn’t technically apply a filter until you save is because we knew we wanted to be able to stack filters! Mix and match, save, and make your own flair. So we’re bringing in another AMAZING A Color Story user and master mural-hunter, @rclayton, to talk about her favorite filter combos that can offer a subtle but impactful touch.

Hey, guys! Rosie here, and I’d like to share some of my favorite A Color Story filter combinations with you. Layering various ACS filters can really make your photos come alive. Each filter you layer on will pull out different color elements in your photo and pop varying features. This creates more depth and interest in your photo. I find that the order in which the filters are applied makes a difference in the final photo since each filter is playing off the previous color edit. After I play around with the filter combinations, I make small adjustments with tools and curves to finalize my edit.

How to shift colors with A Color Story app
Hey, everyone! I’m Arielle, a photographer with a focus on lifestyle and abstract nature. I was so thrilled to be a part of the A Color Story test group. As soon as I opened up the tool box, I noticed so much more than your standard set of altering mechanisms. Today I’ll be touching on how to utilize hue shift as well as how it works with the main color tools. So, what is hue exactly? It’s a variety or shade of any given color in the spectrum. If you’ve experimented with hue shift already, you may have noticed that it can be very dramatic or give off a psychedelic vibe. Essentially, I’ll be showing you examples of photos where the entire image can be shifted to a totally different color while maintaining the original integrity and the best types of images to use while doing so.
