Invert Anything


Recommended Posts

Adjustments > Invert Anything


This plugin allows you to invert a pretty wide variety of things all in one plugin.


I'm 99% sure most of this exists elsewhere, but there are a couple things that don't exist yet.




  • Red/Green/Blue -- inverts the red, blue and/or green channels. Will essentially turn yellow into blue, red into cyan, and so on.
  • Hue/Saturation/Value  Inverts the hue, saturation or value.
  • Alpha -- Inverts the alpha channel -- transparent pixels will become more opaque, and vice-versa. Fully transparent pixels will apparently turn black.



This feature came from a different plugin I'm working on. Essentially you're inverting things on either side of the median. If you're doing this with red contrast+green contrast+blue contrast on something colorful, for example, you'll get an image that's significantly more gray. Something with more washed-out colors will become more colorful. Essentially you're pulling the colors further away from the median towards the median (making them gray) and vice-versa.


Other effects work much the same way, except instead of the median being gray it'll be whatever the median value for that setting is -- hue contrast for example will pull things closer or further away from cyan because that's the median hue.


Plugin Examples

This plugin offers a large amount of options, so rather than show them all I'll show each individual setting and a few interesting combinations all in one image.




First, here's a source image. This cat is pretty useful for testing color/adjustment plugins -- lots of different colors, a good bit of white and black as well.




Here are some different settings. The "Everything" means "everything but alpha + alpha contrast".

Nice. Would it make more sense to have a drop down list? It would shorten the UI quite a bit and also allow you to add more options if they come along.

The best, laziest solution would be to add horizontal rules (separators) between each mini group for visual distinction. Could also do this:

red         red contrast        hue              hue contrast               alpha
blue       blue contrast      saturation  saturation contrast    alpha contrast
green    green contrast    value           value contrast

Or organize like this:

  red contrast
  blue contrast
  green contrast

Incidentally the inversion of RGB HSV and alpha can be done with the Channel Ops plugin, although the 'contrast' versions of each channel aren't a concept there.

IndirectUI doesn’t have a horizontal separator control.
