Colorize image. Colorizes the image data while preserving shadows and highlights.
Replacement RGB color.
Disable automatic brightness compensation.
Enable automatic brightness compensation (default).
Contrast range (real 0..100); set to 0 to preserve the input contrast.
The second argument specifies whether the brightness of the source image should be adjusted before colorizing. Specify
off to disable the automatic brightness compensation or
norm to adjust the brightness automatically so that the median value is at 50% intensity.
contrast value to 0 to preserve the contrast range of the input image, or specify a desired contrast range with a value greater than 0. A value of 100 maximizes the contrast. Typical values might be between 30 and 70.
In addition to the built-in brightness and contrast adjustments,
op_contrast= may be used to further fine-tune the colorizing effect.
The colorizing algorithm uses only the luminance information in the image data. This conversion to grayscale is simple and not color-managed.
op_colorize always outputs RGB data, even if the input is grayscale or CMYK.
Layer command. Applies to the current layer or to the composite image if
layer=comp. Ignored by effect layers.
color must be an RGB value; gray or CMYK
color values are not supported.
contrast value is ignored if brightness compensation is turned off.
color is assumed to exist in the working color space corresponding to the pixel type of
color is converted accurately if the layer image has a different pixel type at the time of merge.
CMYK images are converted to RGB before the operation is applied.
None, for no colorization. The second and third arguments default to
norm,0, for automatic brightness compensation and no contrast change.
Adjust brightness and contrast dynamically before colorizing an image layer:
Use automatic brightness and contrast adjustment instead:
