Tinting fade colour photographs

Postby DDR » Tue Jul 16, 2013 7:19 am

In some cases, we need to make a tinted fade color photograph. Not the BW tinted photographs, wherein all colours are completely vanished before we colour it into a basic tone (sepia, platinum, silver, etc.). But initially full-colour photographs which we made to be fade colour with a preset (preset in any editor, ColourStyler included) then coloured into sepia, cyanotype, etc...

This makes a problem with the current editors. The core of the problem is that the current colour editors, including ColourStyler, do not include such a function. While the BW editors wanish all colour before to tint the photographs.

A little help is made with PS actions. But the solely engine I know is Seim Platinum/Palladium action. (I purchased it for $50 two years ago, and use until now.) But this Seim action is limited by the platinum/palladium tinting, and does not provide such popular tinting option ad daguerreotype, bromoil, silver, etc.

My question is a follows. Is possible to add the "colour tone" engine currently containing in BW Styler to ColourStyler? And if yes, will the engine merely add the tone over the colour photograph (as desired)? Or the noting engine being added to Colour Styler would vanish all the basic colours (that would make all my suggestion to be nonsense)?

I am not quite sure what kind of effect you want to achieve. Can you show me one or more image examples?`

BWStyler 2 will soon be released and include most features of ColorStyler plus some other B&W related ones.

BWStyler 1 already offers mask features for bringing back color. For example, in Expert Mode on the Mask Tab sheet you can use the Color Mask, Brightness Mask or Saturation Mask effect. BWStyler 2 will include a new Colorkey effect and a brush tool, which offer even more control for bringing back colors. But I am not sure if the effect you are looking for can be produced with these option in BWStyler.
