I tried some Film and Filter Effects on an image I have of some boats in the fog. The photo was taken the day before Christmas in December, 2003. The image has always looked too blue to me, but this is what I got when I took the photo.

I added an Orange Filter Effect with Paint Shop Pro Photo XI and got some more warmth into the image.

Then I tried using the Vivid Film Effect with the Orange Filter Effect.

Now, that image really pops!

I also tried the Enhanced Reds Film Effect with the Orange Filter Effect.

You can see that all the light blues disappeared from that image.

Then, I went back to the blues by using the Muted Reds Film Effect with the Night Effect Filter.

The Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI Filter Effects and Film Effects are great tools that simulate the behaviors of some of the slide films I’ve used in the past.
