Recolor, result not what I expected.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've been trying to work out what I am doing wrong and it has manged to copletely fox me.


1 Creat new image

2 Color fill RGB 4,18,57

3 select recolor

4 set primary to RGB 0,0,128

5 set secondary to RGB 4,18,57

6 perfom some recolor

7 using color picker test new color = RGB 0,0,199


Scratch head.


Thanks for any advice.

Obviously that was not my original job but creating a new file seemed a good way to test it without mixed profiles or strange image values.

If I pick a primary of RGB 0,0.92 it seems closer to my desired end tone.

After some testing, I think the behavior has something to do with the tolerance of the recolor tool. At 0% tolerance, you get exactly the color you select, but at other tolerance settings, the results can vary.

I'm not sure why this happens, so I'm waiting for an explanation too :) Great question!
