Forget the Watermark
By default, Prisma adds a small logo watermark at the bottom right corner of the completed artworks. It is an unwanted distraction to your lovely painting-like image. You can remove this with a simple trick. You need to open the settings of Prisma before taking snaps and click on the option "Enable Watermarks" to turn the toggle off. This will keep the app away from adding the watermark to your images.
Don't Always Use the Prisma Camera
Of course, there is a camera function in Prisma, but this camera lacks HDR and manual controls. All you can do with this camera is just control the flash. The good thing is that the app lets you import photos that are stored in your device's gallery.
The filters in Prisma make use of well-designed algorithms to create the artistic effects that you see in the output. You need to understand how each filter actually works to know what you need to look for in the base photos. Each filter is unique and it is recommended that you practice with all the filters to find out what works well with your photo.
Avoid Flat Photos
Avoid using the flat photos that lack definition as such photos will get even flatter when the filters are applied. This will result in a loss of detail and the result will be dull and unimpressive.
Understand the Filters Well
Prisma has a selection of art filters and it might take you enough time to find out the best ones that will yield good results. Filters such as Curtain, Electric, and MIOBI result in brush style strokes that will usually work with most shots. On the other hand, filters like Heisenberg will be great only for the right kind of base shot.
Max Intensity is Not Mandatory
You can adjust the intensity of the Prisma filters by simply sliding your finger right and left on the image. Usually, most filters work the best at high intensities. But, there are exceptions and some filters such as Roland and Flame Flower can be toned down a bit.
