Steps to remove the red filter from your Tiktok videos

The silhouette videos were one popular trend on TikTok as many users used the red filter to give their videos a suggestive feeling.

Getting rid of the red filter is simple; however, it requires installing a third-party app.

  1. Install the TikTok app on your phone if you haven’t already. If you are already a Tiktok user, log in to your TikTok account.
  2. In the search bar, type in ‘Red Silhouette,’’ many short videos with the silhouette challenge filter will appear. Save the silhouette challenge video to your gallery.
  3. Download a video editor app on your phone from the App Store or the Play store. A suggestion for this type of app is the inShot app.
  4. Open the red light video in the app.
  5. To remove the red light first, you need to increase the brightness of the downloaded TikTok video.
  6. Next, decrease the contrast and saturation of the video.
  7. Finally, decrease the tint in your video, and the filter should be completely removed from the video.

Once you remove the filter, the video will appear in back and white.
