BoltBait Posted October 18, 2006 Share Posted October 18, 2006 OK, so I had this idea to create a pastel filter. What I evenually came up with looked fair on some images and poor on others. Well, I finally updated this effect and I think this is a winner! Here is a "before & after" picture: Anyway, here was my idea: First, I normalize the Hue to reduce the number of overall colors--similar to a "cutout" effect. Then, I compress all of the Saturation (S) information from 15-100 into 15-50. This should lighten up all the colors to a nice pastel tone. Then, it compresses the Value (V) from 5-100 into 85-100. This should really get rid of all the dark colors. The only thing left to deal with was the near black pixels. Finally, I converted all of the near black pixels to a shade of gray.
