NinthDesertDude Posted October 14, 2015 Share Posted October 14, 2015 (edited) Overview Color Replacer can convert pixels in the current selection from one color to another. Pixels with colors that almost match (based on a % match called tolerance) will be affected too, but the original color will be mixed with the new color. It is located under the Adjustments tab. Purpose and Application Use this plugin to remove backgrounds that are close to being single colors. Affected color: The color that you want to change. New color: The new color to choose. Affected color transparency: The transparency of the color to be changed. New color transparency: The transparency of the new color. Tolerance: Instead of just replacing the exact color you choose, why not replace colors relatively close to it as well? Increasing the tolerance increases the range (in RGB) of colors that can be selected. Higher tolerances catch more similar colors. 255 catches everything. Max hue/sat/val difference: These are restrictions placed on the tolerance. When you specify a color, some photos may need a high tolerance to match the colors of your choice. For example, a red gradient for the background of an orange gradient logo. In this case, the maximum hue difference must be limited so only pixels within a certain hue range of the initial color are selected... leaving the orange pixels alone. Color mixing hardness: When pixels are replaced by the chosen color, the further they were from the original color, the less effect the color replacement has. This hardness setting allows you to change this behavior by either tweaking the softness or setting it to 255 so there is no soft color mixing. Remarks When replacing with transparency, consider getting AA's Assistant so that you can remove some of the aftermath (color replacement is imperfect by nature and will usually leave expanses of tinted, lightly transparent areas that AA's Assistant removes).

I just had to use a license to avoid ambiguity. Edited October 5, 2021 by NinthDesertDude updated google link 1 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
