  1. Hello, I've made an effect that converts pixels to a single color and adjusts the alpha value based on deviation from that color. Essentially it's a grayscale to alpha converter, capable of extracting black or white objects from a background of the other color, but it could be used with other colors as well. Should the image contain alpha values already, it can be blended with the calculated alpha. The resulting image has only one RGB color, with all variation in the alpha channel only. Download the plugin Menu: Effects > Color Why this plugin? There are mu
  2. Back with my second plugin. This time I made a plugin that can be used to easily and quickly create a gradient mapping effect using 2 colors. I know pyrochild already made a gradient mapping tool, but this is just a simplified version using only 2 colors for dark and light tones. I added some options for post processing as well, like contrast and blending mode.

  3. Hi All, This plugin is an improvement on Jotaf's Grim Color Reaper. I use this plugin a lot but wanted some improvements, suddenly I realized that the since I can code a little and I can use the skill (?) . As, Jotaf has mentioned in his post that it is opensource, so I made one mine on Codelab version 3.3. The enhancement it has that It lets you now to choose color through UI instead of going through selecting primary color. It also has an option for keeping color i.e. while Grim Color Reaper 'kills' a specific color, Kill Color Keeper has an option to

  7. This is very simple effect which allows to eliminate dark or light areas of the image. Good deletes black or white color (as a special case of dark or light, respectively). The effect has a very simple interface. You can find it under Effects-> Color-> Eliminate Dark/Light. EliminateDarkLight.zip Original image: Eliminate dark areas: Eliminate light areas: Below the sourse code for CodeLab. This is аn icon for the effect: P.S. I decided to start a new topic
  8. The Color Clearer plugin makes pixels that match the selected color transparent, and modifies the transparency and color of the other pixels to maximize their transparency while still producing the original color when blended with the normal blending mode to a background set to the selected color. It some sense, it removes as much of the selected color as possible from each pixel. Here is the (still simple) user interface: The Make Transparent Pixels Transparent White check box specifies that transparent pixels will be set to transparent white, rather than have their colors
  9. Color > Color Magic It's been a while since I've posted here. I'm currently in the process of reorganizing/revamping my plugins as well as developing new ones. Color Magic This plugin lets you recolor an image in a pretty wide variety of ways with a lot of fine-tuning. It's designed in such a way to keep colors at reasonable proportions to one another, meaning that unlike other coloring effects (including even the regular Hue adjustment) , these hue shifts look quite natural. While it will probably take a lot of experimentation to get something in particu
  10. During a frustrating run of having to swap and replace 20+ colors and potentially more in the future to give my pixel art a better look and feel, I made a plugin that allows you to swap and change colors though typing them in a list. The plugin also has the ability to manipulate annoying alpha colors that plugins sometimes generate. Setting alpha to 255 reveals all of those ugly alpha leftovers! There is also the option of using an incremental palette, which clamps RGB colors to increments of a value. Useful for limiting colors to a known value that you can manipulate easier such as feeding th
  11. This plugin can be useful for selecting objects in the image or for creation a color mask of object. The plugin is based on the script of Color Target plugin by @rwp80. You can find it: Effects -> Color -> Color Range Previous downloads - 1605 ColorRange.zip This effect allows you to create a color mask of object in the image. You can then select the object using Magic Wand ( ) for further work with him. See short tutorial and examples of effect's work in the Color Range Test topic. CodeLab script:

  13. RGB Compositor Effects -> Color -> RGB Compositor Description This will use a single channel from each photo to compose a full RGB value for the final image. The 8-Bit Guy on YouTube explains it well. NOTE: All three photos need to be the same size as your canvas. NOTE: No, this will not magically turn a Black and White photo to a color photo. Before (An image for each color channel) Red Green Blue After (Composed) Changelog v1.
  14. This is a very simple plugin originally intended to erase pixels in the canvas that don't match the clipboard, but extended so that it can optionally keep them instead. The clipboard image must be the same size as the canvas; otherwise, the effect does nothing. For no particularly good reason, other than I couldn't think of anything better, it's in the Color menu. The plugin: MismatchEraser.zip It's a CodLab plugin. Here is the source code:
  15. TechnoRobbo's Contour Filler V1.5.2 A gradient fill plugin that follows the contour of the Alpha Channel Make sure to deselect before using. Larger images take longer to render. Choose from smooth (zero slices) and stepped gradient Version 1.5.2 minor code cleanup Version 1.5.1 My apologies uploaded wrong version Version 1.5 has a smoothing component and new high speed code.

  16. This plugin is like a more useful version of the color replacement tool. Whereas the standard tool merely paints over pixels if they're close enough to the secondary color, this plugin recolors every pixel a different amount based on how similar it is to the secondary color. For example I'll use this colorful image: Here's the built in tool replacing pink with cyan at about 30%: Notice the ugly, harsh edges and how some pinkish parts of the image are entirely untouched. Now my plugin replacing pink with cyan:

  18. This plugin has been updated by @Pratyush. Find the new version here Updated 9/10/2011: Right, it turns out that the original plug-in is no longer compatible with PDN. I fixed it, and also decided to make it open-source! This way I can take contributions to improve this, and maybe it will also help improve other plug-ins with this sort of alpha handling. The code is only a few lines of code long, but it uses (*gasp!*) MATH! Check it out if you're the coder type. The attached zip file includes both the DLL and source code (which you can open with CodeLab). Origi

  21. Hi again! And now my 2nd plugin: Selective Toning (to be found in the 'Color' submenu) User Interface: Demo: Just before posting I saw the similarity to the "Advanced Color Replacement" plugin. I still decided to post my one here, because it features some what more configuration possibilities, a blending mode selector and the possibility to use the alpha channel. The last feature enables one to use this plugin similarly like the great "Color to Alpha" plugin. This plugin is once again entirely written using the fantastic "Code Lab" plugin -

  24. Expand color What's this? This effect was a bonus in the bottom list of my pack of plugins. Now with the Russian version (thank you @ReMake) it is time to have its own post. This effect compare the colors of the canvas with the primary (PC) and the secondary (SC) colors. Based on the ratio of the gap the color will be replace either by PC, SC or unchanged. It could be useful to reduce the weight of the image (less colors) and to turn the image in bicolored picture. Just a tool for fun. Download it! Plugin ExpandColor.dll Her
  25. Recolor gray What's this? This is not a realistic recoloring black & white image! Just a tool for fun. This is a (re)color plugin to recolor grey, gray or any color with a formula.
