Popular Art Styles
There are loads of art styles from the Library, but we’ve picked out the most popular ones for you!
This art style was named after the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Since the painter was fond of using primary colors, the yellow, blue and red hues in your photo will be emphasized. Your photo will also have a 2D effect.
Everyone knows this famous painting! And yes, it’s one of the popular effects in this app. Just like the colors used by the Norwegian expressionist artist Edvard Munch would put it, shades of orange in your photo will be dominant. If it has shades of red, it will be brightened and turn orange. White will become orange too. Moreover, your blue shades will also be accentuated, and the black colors will become dark blue.
With this effect, lines in your photo will be darker and emphasized, creating strong shapes. It will also add coolness to your photo while making your whites light blue. Lighter colors in your photo will be muted further.
Marcus D – Lone Wolf
Aside from a series of painter-inspired effects, Prisma has this effect inspired by musician Marcus D’s album cover. This musician uses Japanese art style, and when you apply this effect on your photo, the blue shades will be darker and the orange and red colors will become pale white.
This makes the lines bolder, making the shapes of your photo clearer. The colors in your photo will become a bit darker too.
- There are still plenty of art styles you can choose from in the Library. Add them by tapping them one by one.
- You’ll know if the effects have been added once you see the green checkmark.
