Multicolor Painting: Examples and Possibilities

AKVIS Coloriage is as easy to use as a coloring book. Indicate the desired colors using the Pencil tool and press the Run button; the program does the rest of the work: it recognizes the object's border and tailors the new color to the original tones.

The Pencil tool used to draw color strokes to assign a color to every object can also draw with several colors simultaneously to select more details quickly. To activate this feature, click on Multicolor Mode in the tool's parameters. Please note that this feature is only available under the Home Deluxe and Business licenses.

We'll take a look at three cases where this feature would be useful:

  1. Coloring a contrasting B&W image with many small objects which are difficult to select;
  2. Quickly recoloring a color image;
  3. Creating shade and color variations.

Coloring a Contrasting Image

In some cases, Multicolor mode can help you avoid the laborious task of selecting several small objects in an image: flowers in a meadow, dots on a dress, stars in the sky, etc. Ideally, the objects should contrast well with the background.

For example let's use a photo of tulips in flower beds:

Recoloring a Color Image

Multicolor mode can replace one set of colors with another. This is very useful when working with complex geometric patterns composed of a limited number of colors.


Creating Shade and Color Variations

Artists are able to convey the color and volume of objects with a variety of shades and tones. AKVIS Coloriage has its own tricks to achieve masterful coloring, when one color is not enough.
