The Orton Effect allows enhancements to an image that includes glow and focus which produces photos that are sharp and blurry at the same time. This is a great way to add a unique look to your photos.  While it works great on portraits, you can absolutely use it on most photos.

Standard Controls

  • Type. Type pop-up menu offers two choices. 
    • Type 1 increases the Saturation of the image.
    • Type 2 is a softer glow.
  • Amount. Controls the overall strength of the effect.

Advanced Controls

  • Softness. Choose whether you want the effect to blend gently or have more defined edges.
  • Brightness. This control can raise the luminance values of the entire image.
