Bi-Color Toning

Apply two different colors to tone various parts of your photo.

This filter is a good choice for enhancing seascapes and landscape photos. Bi-color toning simulates a traditional glass filter by taking two different colors and applies one to the top and one to the bottom with the ability to rotate for a beautiful end result.

Filter controls


This controls the intensity of the filter. Overall, how strong the colors are.

Top Color

This is the color used at the top of the frame. This will usually be a shad of blue or purple for the sky.

Bottom Color

Use this color to control the landscape or water color.


The blend control affects how smooth or a transition there is between the top and bottom adjustment. A higher value creates a soft transition while a lower value is more abrupt.


The shift option moves the transition point between adjustments. By default it is centered top-to-bottom, but this can be raised or lowered in the frame.


If your image is angled (or your scene has strong geometric composition) you can rotate the angle of the blending. You’ll find controls to rotate + or - 90 ̊.
