Tutorial: AKVIS Coloriage

Color options for the interior design


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

AKVIS Coloriage allows designers to experiment with the color schemes for the interior and exterior design. First you use any program to create an interior design in one color or in black and white, then you use AKVIS Coloriage to set a color for every object and detail.

    Interior design in black and white Colorized image

Below is an interior design in black and white created in 3DS MAX.

    In this tutorial we use the plugin version, but you can take the standalone program and do the same. You will need to open the original image each time, to get the results with various color range.
  • Step 1. Open the image in your photo editor, for example, in AliveColors.
    Black and white interior design
  • Step 2. Call the plug-in AKVIS Coloriage by selecting the command Effects –> AKVIS –> Coloriage in AliveColors.
  • Step 3. First we will render the interior in beige. Draw a contour within the objects using different hues of beige and the colors that harmonize with it:

      select brown for the plinth and the floor;

      paint the walls in beige and the ceiling in a light beige;

      select white for the radiator, the window-frame and the columns;

      select milk-white for the buffet (do not forget to outline the windows in the buffet);

      select a greenish tone for the glass shelves and windows of the buffet;

      choose some light hue of the tree color for the table and the chairs, and a darker tone for the lunch counter.

    Select a color for every object and draw an outline within it
  • Step 4. Press the button and see the colorization result in the After tab.

  • Step 5. Save the drawn strokes in a file. For this purpose press the button and save the file, for example, under the name Interior-beige.
  • Step 6. Press the button . The plugin window of AKVIS Coloriage will close and you will see your black and white photo colorized in the chosen colors. Save the photo in a file.
  • Step 7. Go one step back in the History panel to the original black and white photo and call AKVIS Coloriage again.
  • Step 8. Open the file with the saved strokes by pressing the button and by selecting the file Interior-beige.strokes from the list.
    Open the file with the strokes
  • Step 9. Change the color of the walls and of the floor. To change the color of the walls, select the bright yellow-orange from the palette, activate the Magic tube tool and left-click on any stroke on the wall.

    As a result, all strokes of this color will change to yellow-orange. Change the color of the floor and the plinth to a more saturated brown that will harmonize with the bright color of the walls.

  • Step 10. Press the button and see the new color range in the After tab.

      We will paint the ceiling in white;

      Change the color of the furniture.
