How To Use Rainbow Filter Effects Like a Pro

May 29, 2021 · 3 minutes read

Looking for a way to make your drab photo pop? Why not add some color? Rainbow filter effects can colorize your photo or add a rainbow overlay into your images, making your background sky extra lucky. Think your favorite Instagram filter, but even sexier. We’ll go over how to rainbow filter a picture so you can make every snap a winner.

Why Is Rainbow Filter Trendy?

Like other photo filters, the rainbow filter adds a custom effect to your photo, enhancing its aesthetic. Using this filter, you can superimpose a digital rainbow onto your images or give a rainbow-colored hue effect to your photos. The choice is yours depending on whether you want to be metaphorical or literal. Dreary or otherwise ordinary photos can suddenly become that much cooler. Go psychedelic for a tie-dye-inspired vibe, or keep things shining with crystal-fragmented light for a more witchy look.

Because rainbow photos play with so many colors, they can help you set the mood for a photo. Things will instantly appear brighter, happier, and more fun. If you want to show support to the LGBTQ+ community, you can also use a rainbow filter to showcase your pride.

Rainbow Replacement

First, head to the Edit menu, where you can select the Sky and Rainbow section. From here, you’ll see five unique rainbow designs you can add to your photos. Maybe you want to make yourself the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Or maybe you just want to make a special moment that much more memorable? Either way, all it takes is a few clicks.

Rainbow Replacement

If you have a sky photo or any landscape or portrait image, you can add the rainbow for an added colorful effect. It will look completely natural, so no one will be able to tell that you added the rainbow over the picture after the fact.

It is also worth mentioning that the sky replacement tool is different from filters and is extremely easy to use, compared with similar tools offered by other photo editing apps and software. You don’t need to be a photo editing expert to create amazing images with the sky replacement feature. After choosing the perfect sky for your photo, you can make necessary adjustments by pinching and dragging the sky image. And to continue with our rainbow theme, you now have 5 different options of rainbow skies to choose from! Try it now!
