Color: Open this gallery to see Color Saturation and Color Tone correction presets,
as well as a variety of Recolor options for changing the overall color of the image.

and then click it.

you can use to transform the selected picture’s overall appearance, such as Chalk
Sketch, Paint Strokes, and Film Grain. Use your mouse to Live Preview an effect,
