Here is an example of how Color Libraries will help beginners and pros to improve their colorization results. Amongst others, the libraries include palettes for teeth, eye whites and white fabrics. Generally, we perceive these as “white” objects.
However, under different lighting conditions these photo areas have shades of so many colors, that pure white just won’t work! If you encounter problems making such objects look natural, remember that these collections of useful color prompts are always at hand!
Most libraries include colors and gradients. Note that gradients are unique to each individual photo, so use the templates as a starting point for your ideas.
At some point, you may find it useful to start compiling your own color palettes. In Colorizer Pro, you can create as many libraries as you wish. The program saves them to a .cml file and lets you export your collections or import custom libraries shared with you by your fellow colorizers.
To build your color collection, save colors and gradients using the quick-access operation in the Color Picker and the Gradient Settings. You can manually select or pick them from a color image with the help of the Pipette or the Gradient Capture tool.
If you plan to use the palette from one colorization with other images, save the History directly to a new library. It only takes a moment and will provide you with a quality color reference for the future!
