The presets a the top of the tools panel give you an idea of the effects you can achieve. Below are buttons for controlling the Tonality and drama Type, but this is a simple filter to use because below this there are just two sliders for adjusting the Strength of the Drama effect and the colour Saturation.

On this picture the Drama filter has produced a contrast, bleach-bypass effect, but you can use it in other ways. Its overall effect is to darken brighter parts and brighten darker parts of the picture, and it can work well on landscapes with bright skies, balancing up the tones and, if you increase the saturation, boosting the colours. In general, the Drama filter is especially useful for giving flat-looking pictures a real ‘kick’.
