Basic color mapping
We're going to take the colors from our kitten picture (below) and map them to the beach scene. (In a while, we'll see why trying to map the oranges in the kitten picture to the blues and greens in the tropical scene isn't the best idea. Hopefully getting to that point will give you some ideas of your own!)
For this tutorial, we'll be taking the color from the image
of the kitten and applying it to the beach scene.
1. Color map uses the color squares to do its work. First we need to generate color squares from the kitten picture. So launch Studio Artist and select the kitten picture as your Source Image. You can generate color squares directly from the source image, or you can set the source as the background of your canvas and generate the color squares from the canvas, as in the example below.
Studio Artist can generate a palette of color from an image using the method seen above.
2. Switch to the color map Image Operation. Leave it in RGB mode for now, and set option to smooth. The quantize settings give a posterization effect; smooth will allow gradations of tone.
Locate the Color Map Image Operation either in the Operation
menu or in the tool palette on the left of the canvas.
