One of the most popular ways to transform the visual appearance of photos nowadays is by using filters.
Many apps and social media platforms even have some filters built-in that you can use, but if you’re looking for a more comprehensive selection or to add multiple filters – you’ll need a photo editor.
The good news is that on that front Movavi Photo Editor will have you more than covered.
Not only will it help you to add a filter to photo but it has an impressive selection of filters that you can choose from. Let’s have an in-depth look!
Movavi Photo Editor – The One-Stop Solution For Image Editing
In Movavi Photo Editor, you’ll find over 120 different effects that you can use on your photos, spread across 11 different categories.
If you want to actually apply a filter to your photo, you’ll find that nothing could be easier. Assuming you’ve already downloaded and installed the application, you can launch it and will have added your first filter in just a minute or two from now.

If you prefer you can drag and drop the file into the main window, as indicated right above the button.
Once the photo has been added you should open up the ‘Effects’ tab in the upper part of Movavi Photo Editor’s interface.

In each category, you’ll find numerous different filters, and you can click on any to see how it will look in your photo.
Some filters that you add using Movavi Photo Editor will have an ‘intensity’ setting, and if that’s the case you should see a slider below the icon that you can adjust to increase or decrease its intensity.
