    I was down on the idea of Art Filters until I started to see the photographs. Now I like them. Let's see some Art Filter images!

    I thought I would resurrect this thread. Most people look down on the Art Filters as a silly add-on. I find that fun to play with every now and then.

    Does anybody else?

    Does anyone know if you get the same look and quality if you shoot the art filter in camera vs adding it later in the Olympus App?

    Yes, you can add the same art filters to a RAW image in Olympus Viewer.

    But IMO it's faster to take RAW+JPEG with Art filters in camera. The RAW will be a normal shot, and the JPEG will have the Art filter applied.

    Good idea. I used to play around w/ these more, but not lately. This one won me a local contest oddly enough (Dramatic tone)...really made a semi boring photo pop. 60mm f2.8 & EM5.

    This particular one works really well for car photos too

    Are all these filters done in cam? Is there a difference vs shooting with them in cam vs adding the effects later in post I.E. the Olympus App on our smartphones?

    I believe the intention of this thread is to share images are shot using the in-camera "Art Filters" (Olympus) or "Creative Control" modes (Panasonic). If you've got images you've post-processed on your smartphone, my suggestion would be to start a new thread.

    I just simply want to know if there is a difference vs using the in camera filters vs doing them in post via the OIS app. No need to start a new thread for a simple question thanks.

    Sorry, I misread your question. I'm not familiar with the Olympus app, but Graham's response appears to indicate that the filters are the same whether applied in-camera or in post. The major functional difference (to me, at least) is that if you use the in-camera filters you can review the results immediately.

    No worries. I was just asking because maybe when you are shooting in a certain mode you may not like the end result vs shooting in regular mode (no filter) then apply them in post and you can see the difference between each filter.

    If, you don't have the OIS app for your smartphone you should get it. Its free and you can transfer your images/videos from your camera directly to your smartphone; its very cool. Plus you can edit your pictures on there (art filters, etc.).

    I'll have to take a look. Although none of my existing cameras has WiFi, which I suspect would limit the usability.
