How To Use

Here’s how you can use Coloriage to color a black and white image:

  2. In Photoshop, choose the Filter | Akvis | Coloriage. This will open the Coloriage interface that you can see in the screenshot below. As you can see, Coloriage shows the black and white image in the Before tab, which has yet to be colored.

  5. The Coloriage interface also sports a toolbar on the top that contains tools for selections and editing such as pencil, eraser etc.
  6. You need to use the pencil - and then select appropriate colors from the Color Library or Color Palette. Thereafter. Create outlines around recognizable areas you want to color. The screenshot below shows colors chosen for isolated areas like the coat, hair, face, cap, etc.

  8. After the outlines have been created, you need to click the Run icon (see screenshot).
