Step 1: Open an image in the Photo Editor.

Step 2: Open the Effects menu and click on Cinematic.

Step 3: Chose an effect that matches your vision. 

Step 4: Use the Settings panel to fine-tune the effect. Each effect will have different parameters to adjust, they include:

  • Intensity/Amount/Strength: The overall level of effect that is being applied to the image. 

  • Shadows, Midtones, and Highlights: Adjusts the intensity and detail of the dark, average, and bright parts of the effect.

  • Distortion: Stretches or deforms the effect. 

  • Focal Point: Sets where the effect is focused on the canvas. This can be adjusted to fit your desired look. 

  • Blur, Phase, and Scale: Applies a blur to the effect on the image. Phase and Scale adjust the positioning of the blur, as well as the the size and amount. 

Step 6: Click Apply to apply the effect to your image, or Cancel to remove.

Step 7: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
