AI Photography Guide: Mastering Color Filters — Volume 6

7 min readFeb 19, 2024


Continuing from my previous post, I’d like to add another twenty example images showcasing various color filters used in image generation with Generative AIs, such as Midjourney. To facilitate easier comparison of the effects these filters have on generated images, I’ve decided to split this post into several parts. The first part was dedicated to portraits; today, my focus shifts to architecture. Specifically, I’ll explore how color filters can significantly change the perception of a historic city center.

Imbuing images with a warm, brownish tint, the sepia filter gives them an antique or historical feel. It’s perfect for evoking a sense of age…
