Find the Right Filter with the Tiffen Filter Effects Directory


Welcome to the Tiffen Filter Effects Directory! The directory is your interactive guide to 16 popular Tiffen filters. Here you can see, first hand, the effects a particular Tiffen filter has on an image by selecting a specific filter and then using your mouse to position the filter around the image.

There are those who say that you can simulate the effects of any filter when you use post-processing software, but many of us know that creating the effects organically, with a filter, provides the most true effect for your images. It also alleviates the need to spend hours in front of the computer trying to simulate an effect that you captured in a fraction of a second using a filter.
