Applying filters to your background

You can apply filters to your backgrounds to change their feel and tone.

To add a filter to an illustrative background:

  1. Click on the background you wish to apply a filter to.
  2. A dotted outline and editing options will appear around the background.
  3. Click on the Filter option on the editor toolbar.
  4. A small popup will appear revealing all the different filters you can apply to your background. Select the one you wish to apply.
  5. Clicking on the Advanced Options button on the bottom of the drop down list will give you more options to help adjust any filter you like.
