Tutorial: AKVIS Coloriage

Paint your house

 

You can colorize this photo yourself using the half-finished materials that we give you. Download the archive containing the original image and the file with the strokes (*.strokes). Read the instruction to see how to work with the strokes.

Earlier, in the example "Color options for the interior design", we showed how to use AKVIS Coloriage to change the color scheme of an interior design. Now we will deal with an exterior design. We will change the color of the house walls.

    Original image Colorized image

We have chosen the following photo as an example:

    Exterior design in red
  • Step 1. Open the photo in your photo editor and call the AKVIS Coloriage plug-in.
  • Step 2. Select a color for the walls, for example, blue.
  • Step 3. Activate the Pencil tool in the Toolbar and draw a contour inside every red element of the house front.
  • Step 4. Draw a closed contour around every red element with the Keep Color Pencil and draw lines on all elements of the front that should not change their color.
    To adjust the brush size of the Pencil, Keep Color Pencil and Eraser tools you can either use the fall-out scale that appears when you press their corresponding icons on the toolbar or use the hot keys [ and ] in the keyboard.
    Draw a contour with the blue pencil within the walls
  • Step 5. Start the colorization process by pressing the button .
    Blue walls
  • Step 6. Apply the colorization result by pressing the button .

Below are some other versions of the walls' colorization.
