Most of the AKVIS Coloriage AI window is taken by the Image Window with two tabs: Before and After. In the Before tab you can see the original photo; the After tab shows the resulting image.


In the upper part of the program's window you can see the Control Panel with the following buttons:


To the left of the main window there is a Toolbar which contains tools for adding and editing colored strokes (in the Classic mode), as well as tools for fine-tuning the colorized image (in both AI and Classic modes). Different tools appear depending on the active tab, Before or After.

The options of the active tool are shown in the floating window that appears when you right-click any part of the Image Window. If you click outside of the floating window, it disappears.


Navigate and scale the image using the Navigator. In the Navigator you can see the reduced copy of the image. The frame shows the part of the image that is now visible in the Image Window; the areas outside the frame will be shaded. Drag the frame to make other parts of the image visible. To move the frame, bring the cursor inside the frame, press the left mouse button and, keeping it pressed, move the frame in the Navigator.


Use the slider to scale the image in the Image Window. When you move the slider to the right, the image scale increases. When you move the slider to the left, the image scale decreases.

To scroll the image in the Image Window, you can press the spacebar on the keyboard and drag the image with the left mouse button. Use the scroll wheel of the mouse to move the image up/down, by keeping the Ctrl key pressed (Mac: ) – to the left/to the right, by keeping the Alt key pressed (Mac: Option) − scale the image. Right-click the scroll bar to activate the quick navigation menu.

You can also change the image scale by entering a new coefficient into the scale field and pressing the button Enter (Return in Mac). The drop-down menu shows some frequently used coefficients.

You can use hotkeys to change the image scale + and Ctrl++ (++ in Mac) to increase the image scale and - and Ctrl+- (+- in Mac) to reduce the scale.


Under the Navigator, there is a Settings Panel configured depending on the selected mode.
