Hand tinting - Changing season

This chapter starts with a reference section on choosing colors using the various palettes and commands. Also included is a description of the Mixer palette which will be used in the hand coloring step-by-step examples.

Hand colored pictures have a charm which is quite unique and in this chapter you will discover the best way to use this fascinating technique.

Allied to hand coloring is the ability to remove the color and tone photographs, this technique takes a picture a step away from reality which often makes that bit more special.

The scene below has been hand colored using the techniques explained in this chapter.

The picture seen in Figure 10.1 has been photographed in a digital camera using an almost opaque filter to allow only infrared light to enter the camera. This has created the very light delicate tones which are ideal for hand coloring.
