    Default How can I create this effect?

    Can I have some help please. I am trying to find out kind of filter these YouTube videos use. I think they have a slight faded effect:

    Hi GoldFood and welcome.
    The "slightly faded" look you refer to looks to be a combination of reducing the amount of colour (saturation) in the image and a reduction in contrast.

    Most editing software will have a contrast filter/adjustmentr and a saturation control, though the latter might be hidden among other filters like colour wheels or RGB levels.

    Reducing contrast makes the blacs a bit less black and the whites a bit lest white. You should have no trouble finding a filter/adjustment in your editor that will do this.

    But "contrast" and "saturation" are the keywords to search for.
