In the “Adjust‘ screen, you’ll have several options to play around with – brightness, saturation, contrast, hue, clarity, and more.

Adjust them accordingly until the person in the red filter video can be seen clearly. While you can’t remove the red filter, you can decrease the overall red color and emphasize the other elements in the video.

That’s it!

Conclusion

To summarize, you can’t remove the red filter on TikTok completely. You can only increase the brightness, decrease the saturation, and adjust the contrast.

This will help you decrease the impact of the red filter, brighten up the dark areas in the video, and make out the other elements clearer.

You’ll need the Picsart app to do this. Upload the video there and use the “Adjust” function to make the video clearer.

What is the Red Filter Challenge on TikTok?

TikTok never ceases to amaze us with its challenges. The Red Filter Challenge is one of the newer trends on TikTok that have become very popular recently.

Mostly women are doing this challenge where they transition from being fully clothed to being dressed in lingerie only but on a dark and red filter.

Thanks to the red filter, not much is visible, but you can make out a few vague details of their bodies.

That’s where the name of the challenge comes from. The Red Filter covers their bodies in darkness so you can’t see too much.

People are interested in removing the red filter from these videos to see how these women look.

But sadly, the red filter is there to say. It can’t be removed because it’s embedded in the video.

Why can’t I remove the red filter on TikTok?

This is a more complex question that goes into how videos are made.

When you make a video on TikTok and apply a filter, you can’t remove it after you save the video.

Once the video is saved with a given filter, you can’t remove the filter. You can only add or remove filters when editing the video before saving it.

This is because once you save a video with a filter, the filter becomes embedded in the video.

It’s like trying to remove something from the video (a tree or a person). You can’t do that.

It’s the same with the filter. You can’t remove it has become a part of the video. You can only try to get around it using certain video editing techniques.
