Play with vintage filter effects.

Choose the grayscale filter to make your image black and white. Use the Matte filter to give your image a more muted, shot-on-film look. Or, switch through the different Duotone filters to find a sepia tone for a vintage aesthetic.

Take your image to the next level with the color filters. Choose the Duotone filter to combine two colors into a filter. Select from preset options or curate your own colors. Shuffle through the Colorize and Multiply options for some colorful results.
