Can you use Sepia or Warming Filters...or a combo of the two in Basic?

I'm pretty sure it reads no filters except for gaussian blur and noise removal. You could introduce sepia tones with hue/sat, levels, selective color, or duo/tri tones. As long as it's only adjustment layers and applied to whole image.

YES, everything was applied to the whole image....nothing selective.

This the Pride Challenge winner and I believe it's a sepia filter???

Are we talking PS filters, or on the camera filters?

As far as I know, on camera filters are legal.

There is much confusion of the tem "filter" as different software programs use the term differently.

Under Basic Rules:

Glass filter in front of lens: OK

Color "filter" adjustment to change colors only: OK

Effects filter which moves pixels (e.g. "Watercolor" or radial blur): NOT OK -- except for those listed (Sharpen, blur, noise, noise-reduction, dust&scratches) in the rules.

So sepia, cooling blue, warming filter(81), magenta, green etc are ok?

I thought I might be staring at a big fat DQ. Phew!

Thanks

Aw, I'm sorry man, from your thread title I thought you were talking about photo shop filters...

Yeah, filters on the camera are just fine. But filters in Photoshop aren't allowed in basic challenges, except gaussian blur and noise removal filters.

However, you don't need filters to get a good sepia tone or to shift your colors slightly. You can use, for example, Variations, select "More Yellow" and then "More Red" and you'll get a sepia that you can later adjust in Hue/Saturation.

I think what might be causing confusion is that in photoshop, there are some "filters" that aren't in the Filter menu. If you go to Image/Adjustments, there is an option called "Photo Filter...", this provides a number of simulated neutral density color photographic filters, i.e. "Warming Filter (81)". They're pretty much all things you could buy as a real screw on, just simulated in photoshop. Are these considered filters, as filters are described in Basic Editing? They are applied uniformly and don't move pixels.

Thanks gang. I got the OK from the SC. Good to go.

Those are overall color adjustments. They're fine in Basic.
