The Mystical tool gives your image a dreamy look by softening the luminescence while increasing the contrast and saturation. It can create a fantasy look by increasing contrast and adding a creative glow prioritized in the lighter areas of the image.

Standard Settings

  • Amount. This slider adjusts the overall strength of the tool. For a moderate effect and a more realistic image, keep the value of the Amount slider below 40. If the Amount value is 0, the tool is not applied. Move the slider to the right to increase the Amount.
  • Shadows. This slider adjusts the black point for the darker areas of the image.
  • Smoothness. This slider controls the smoothness of the Mystical effect. A higher value creates a gentler blend between the affected and unaffected areas of the image.


  • Saturation. This slider is a practical way to adjust the color saturation of the Mystical effect.
  • Warmth. This slider adjusts the Mystical effect’s hue towards the spectrum’s warm end.
