  • You can view the effects of the various filters in the Preview area of the Library.

  • You can apply a filter to an object by using the drag-and-drop method, by selecting the object and clicking the Apply button in the Library, or by using the Add Filters pop-up menu in the toolbar.

  • The Color Picker tool in the Colors window allows you to select a specific color from anywhere on the computer screen.

  • You can use the slider in the Colors window to lighten or darken the selected color.

  • To save the selected color in the Colors window, you can drag a chip from the color bar to the swatches area.

  • Complementary colors, which are opposite colors on the color wheel, can be used to attract attention.

  • You can copy and paste filters on the Layers tab using the Edit menu, keyboard shortcuts, or a contextual menu.

  • Keying filters are used to remove uniform color or brightness from an image to create transparency. The transparent part of an image is called the alpha channel.

  • You can also create transparency on an object or layer by using masks. Masks can be created with Mask tools or applied as image masks.

  • The Simple Border filter can be applied to an object to add a border. You can then modify the width and color of the border in the Inspector or Dashboard.
