Pixelate this, Bitch...(Recolored Demo)
Thursday, February 09, 2006
Take your black and white photo and import it into recolored.
From here I take a black ink selection and quite messily outline what I want in black, colors I want for skin tone, hair color, eyes and lips. I can either use a drop down selection of 'human skin' to 'Fabric Jeans.' For other colors in-between, I can select a color from the gradient map. The right most icon will 'colorize' your photo. It may take a few tries so if you get the desired color tone the first time, it is wise to save your ongoing project as a .rcl file so you can further edit and if needed, backtrack to where the tone was the way you like it. Okay, this looks about right so let's hit the 'colorize' icon and see what the result is.
Not too freaking bad. The eyes and lips could better be done with Photoshop but this is not a Photoshop demo. Plus, we are working with a 10 minute overhead. Overall, I say Recolored is worth the download. Give it a try and by the way, the picture in the demo is not included in the application.
