The effect to cut one color and shades

ZIP: Cut Color Effect

Description in Russian

The effect is available in the menu "Effects" - "Color".


Cut Color Effect has parameter «Color to leave». Pixels of a different color are now shown transparent or black and white.

If color has many different shades, you must specify the error in the definition of shades of color. 0 is the exact hit in color, maximum 90.


Example # 1 Recolor

Recolor only a car green

Version 2.0 of my effect «cut color»

1. I changed the color tints defining algorithm.
2. The effect has now the third type of action - removing color as the background.

Illustrative example. Let us suppose that we have a picture with soft edges.

Suppose that we want to change the background color to black. So will look a picture, if you use the "magic wand" tool. Soft edges are lost.

Let's use effect “cut color”. UI have new action «remove color as the background».

Posted Image

The result is below

Add below a new layer with a black background.

Magic wand is more powerful, more sophisticated and more universal tool than this effect.... Posted Image But it was a good joke Posted Image Posted Image
