Performs a histogram stretch on an image.
Public classLevelsCommand
Corrects the tonal range and color balance by adjusting the shadow, midtone, and highlights of an image.
Public classCode exampleMosaicCommand

Generate a mosaic (large pixel) image.

Public classMotionBlurCommand
Create an effect to simulate motion blur on an image
Public classNDGradFilterCommand
Neutral Density (ND) Graduated Filter, Flexible in Location, Hardness and Density.

ND filters are used by photographers to compress the dynamic range of high contrast scenes into a smaller range which can be better viewed or printed. These filters feature a 'dark' half and a clear half, with the transition either soft or hard depending on the effect desired. The dark half is typically either 2 or 3 "f-stops" darker. Multiple filters can be applied to achieve a greater or more complex effect.

A typical use for an ND filter is to darken the bright skies in an image to bring its tonal values more in line with those of the darker foreground. Sunrises, sunsets, horizon shots, canyons and other contrasty landscapes are good candidates for an ND filter.

The PhotoEffects ND Graduated is incredibly flexible, allowing you to adjust where in the image you want the effect applied (using the Location property), how dramatic you want the effect (using the Density parameter), how hard or soft you want the transition (using the Hardness property), how large an area you want the effect portion of the filter to cover (using the Radius property), and the angle at which you want the effect (using the Angle property). Angled effects are important if you have a diagonal sun/shade line or other non-horizontal dark/light division in your image.

The PhotoEffects ND filter can even provide "impossible" effects by allowing you to set the density of the "light" side of the filter. With traditional filters this is always transparent (a value of 1) but with the PhotoEffects filter you can set the starting density to be brighter or darker.

Public classOilPaintCommand
This effect makes an image appear as if it's an oil painting.
Public classPhotoColorCoolerCommand
Makes an image appear cooler by adding blue and reducing red without affecting the overall tone or contrast of the image. This is similar to correcting the White Balance setting on a digital camera. The amount of cooling is controlled using the Effect parameter.

By default the command cools by about 20% (1.2), which is the equivalent at daylight color temperatures of about 800-1000 degrees of color temperature.

Public classPhotoColorCorrectCommand
Allows color correction by enhancing or reducing specific colors without affecting image tone.

Specifically, Red, Green, Blue and Yellow can be enhanced or reduced by setting the corresponding effects properties to values >1 for enhancing and <1 for reducing. In all cases the overall tone and contrast of the image is preserved and only the color component of the image is altered.

This command is excellent for removing specific color casts or creating a slightly different effect in an image by changing the relative balance of colors.

It can also be used as a customized color enhancement filter by manually setting the values of the 4 color effect properties to increase the overall color of the image. This is similar to the underlying component of the Automatic Color Correction filters.

Public classPhotoColorCorrectCommandBase
Base class for photo color correction filters.
Public classPhotoColorMagicCommand
PhotoEffects Color Magic is an Automated or semi-Automated Color Enhancement filter. It features a Proprietary Algorithm for improving the existing colors in most digital images.
Public classPhotoColorMultiplyCommand
ColorMultiply uses a proprietary algorithm to uniformly enhance the color components of an image without changing the overall color balance of the image or affecting the tones and tonal distribution.

By controlling the Multiple property you can determine the amount of the effect. 1 is no effect, values of 2 to 3 are more useful and values of 5 and above are fairly extreme.

Note that this command is not "intelligent" so using it on an image which already has saturated colors will result in a somewhat garish look. If you want to more safely correct images or use a color correction in batch mode then use the Color Magic command.

Public classPhotoColorWarmerCommand
Makes an image appear 'warmer' by adding red and reducing blue, without affecting the overall tone or contrast of the image. This is similar to correcting the White Balance setting on a digital camera. The amount of warming is controlled using the Effect parameter.

By default the command warms by about 20% (1.2), which is the equivalent at daylight color temperatures of about 1000-1500 degrees of color temperature.
