PI6 QuickTip #8: The Colorize Pen
A really fast way to change the colors in an image, while retaining existing light and darks, is to select the Colorize Pen from the Retouch Tools. I'm starting with this True Color photo I took of a mockingbird.
Select the Colorize pen from the Retouch Tools. In the Attributes toolbar, click in the Color box to select a color for colorizing.
Scrub the Colorizer pen over the image. In this example, I've used the lavender color selected in the Color box screen shot above, and completely replaced all of the colors with shades of lavender.
In this example, only the bird was colorized with gray, while the background was left untouched.
Colorize pen color changed to several different colors.
