Yesterday we briefly discussed auto-generating color palettes from specific images, and mentioned that one use for this feature is to re-colorize images or movie frames to match the color aesthetics or mood of a particular image or painting you like the color aesthetics of. This post will discuss the methodology of how to do re-colorization based on a custom color palette.
Auto-Generating a Custom Color Palette from an Image
I choose 2 different impressionistic paintings to use as color sources for this post. For each one, I first loaded them into Studio Artist as source images. I then ran the Edit : Color Palette : Generate from : Source Image menu command to generate a custom color palette derived from the source images. You can see the respective source images and their auto-derived color palettes in the gallery below.
