Keywords:Posterize|Pleasantville effect|Flat colour|color|Tone|Saturation|Hue|Simplify Menu: Composition* Original release date:28th October 2016 Author: Red ochre (John Robbins) .dll name: Poster Compatability:Tested on Pdn 3.5.11 and Pdn 4.0.12 Now in my 10.1 pack Red ochre plugin pack V 10.1 This effect analyzes the BGR values within a selection, sorts them into bands by my own definition of Hue, saturation and Tone. Averages the values, then recolours the image. It works within rectangular selections or the whole canvas but the averages may not be correct for irregular selections... use objects instead if this is an issue as fully transparent areas are not included in the averages. I have used a simple BGR cube colour space model to calculate hue, saturation and tone, not the Pdn definitions for H,S,V. The total number of separate colours is given by multiplying the numbers for each of the sliders. Eg. 4 hues, 4 saturations and 4 tones = a maximum of 64 colours. Now, if only one hue band is selected, one saturation band and 10 tones, the image will be composed of 10 colour bands which depend upon the colours in the image. So if all the dark colours are reds and the light colours are blues, the tone bands will not be monochrome! This can be used for a faux 'Pleasantville' effect for some images. * I have decided to create a new SubMenu name 'Composition'. The other relevant sub-menus are overcrowded and I intend to add other relevant effects to this category. As always, the best way to learn is by experiment. My examples are below and please do post your example images in this thread too! . 16 Quote Red ochre Plugin pack..............
