EZ Photo Colorizer Software Instructions

EZ Photo Colorizer Instructions

Click "Open Image" on the top left hand side of the program. Select your photo from the desired location on your computer.

Colorize Button:
If your photo is black and white/you wish to use the colorizer tool to add color, click "Colorize" and then select your desired color by clicking the "Select Color" button next to the color swatch (color swatch will default to black).

Original Color Button:
If you have a color image and wish to leave only one part of it colorized (for example to make a background black and white and leave a person in the photo in color), make your image black and white by clicking either the "Grayscale" filter or the "Darkness" filter. Click the "Original Color" button to turn the brush into an eraser brush that turns the areas you are coloring into the colors of the original photo that you uploaded. You can also use this feature with the other filters in creative ways.

Brush Button:
The brush tool is a free form paint brush that can be used to draw freehand colors onto the image. It is more of a solid brush than the opaque colorizer tool.

Brightness and Contast Button:
Use the sliding bars to brighten and turn up the contrast on your image.

Eraser:
The eraser button will remove any brushed or colorized areas that you have made on the image. Tip: Zoom into the image and use the eraser to clean up any uneven or rough edges.

Drag:
Click the drag button to pan the image by clicking and dragging the photo. You can also use the arrows and slider bars on the right hand side and bottom of the window to navigate around the image.

Note: If you cannot use the colorizer, make sure to check that "Drag" is not selected as the brush will not work while you are dragging.

Zoom:
Use "zoom" to zoom into your image to view greater detail for more accurate colorizing. Zoom out when you are done to see your work.
