Maybe you’re spending your holidays somewhere full of love but less than aesthetic. No worries, AirBrush has six holiday-inspired backgrounds to get your pics to align with the spirit of the season.

Holiday Photo edit Options:Β  Shadow, Blur, Brightness

Use Shadow to intensify shadows in the photo and to ensure they correspond with the light source in the background.

Brightness simply lightens the photo and is another option to help your edit be as seamless as possible.

Use Blur to affect the depth perception of the Background so that it works with the scale of the photo’s subject.
