I am going to show you in this tutorial how I made antique exoticism come to life with AKVIS Coloriage with this early 1900's picture of a Geisha:
- Step 1. Open the postcard with a Geisha in your photo editor.
- Step 2. Start the AKVIS Coloriage plug-in. For this purpose in Adobe Photoshop select the menu item Filter - AKVIS - Coloriage.
- Step 3. Decide which colors you wish to use to make your image a piece of art. Take your time, remember that Da Vinci didn't paint the Mona Lisa in an hour.
- Step 4. Using the very useful AKVIS Color Library, choose the colors for the postcard:
- Step 5. Start to outline the objects in your image with their respected colors. If you feel that you want to get smaller details, just zoom in with Coloriage's handy Zoom tool.
