Vivid filters inspired by the art of Ninagawa – Butterfly, Shower, Balloon, Imitation and more – wrap photos in creative designs and vibrant colors that completely transform the look and personality of the photograph. Additional adjustable filters – Toy 1, Toy 2, Lomo, Beauty, Vintage and Warm – give photos a new story to tell.
