There are quite a few effects that you can apply to your photos in Home Photo Studio. With a couple clicks of your mouse, you can apply many types of effects. Some of the effects include grayscale, emboss, and glass. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to apply effects to your photos using your Home Photo Studio program.
You can begin using this tutorial by opening a photo to work with. You can use this photo to learn how to apply effects. Nothing is saved until you actually save the photo, so you will not have to worry about messing the photo up. To be on the safe side though, open a photo of scenery or something like that.
If you are new to Home Photo Studio and don’t know how to open a photo, follow these steps. Go to the top of your program and click File > Open. That will open a box of folders and you will need to locate the photo that you want to use for this tutorial. Click the photo and click the open button and the photo will open in your program.
Next, you can start applying effects. Most of your effects is located in the Effects menu at the top of your program. Go to the top of your program and click Effects. When the menu opens, you will see the different effects that you can apply. Try the different effects out to see what they look like. To undo an effect, press CTRL Z on your keyboard. Then you can apply another effect.
You can also open the effects browser and apply effects from there. Go to the top of your program and click Effects > Effects Browser. That will open a new window and you will see your photo along with the different effects on the right side of the window. You will also notice different tabs above the effects. These are the effects categories. Click a tab to see the different effects. To apply an effect, click the effect and click the Preview button. If this is the effect that you want to use, click the OK button.
Clicking the OK button will apply the effect you chose and close the effects browser. If you want to undo the effect you applied, press CTRL Z on your keyboard and it will be undone. You can then open the effects browser again and select another effect to apply to your photo. When you are finished, you can save your photo by exporting it from the file menu.
