You can add an effect by choosing from the list in the tab - Black & White, Color tone (similar to Sepia-tone), Saturate (which deepens the colors), and Soft Focus (which is adjustable by dragging the control bar at the bottom of the “Effects” tab). Choose the color effect that works best for your image.
