For this week’s Weekend Art Project #WAPpurple, we have asked users to experiment with the color purple in their images. There are several ways to alter the colors of your images on PicsArt. Here is a tutorial to help you along the way.
Adding Purple to Your Image Using Effects
1. From the home screen, click the “Effect” button, then open your photo. When you open your photo, select Color Adjust from the pop up menu on your screen.
2.Scroll through the toolbar on the bottom of your screen to the right and select the “colorize” effect.
3. After you select colorize, a blue slider labeled Amount should pop up. Adjust the slider until you get the right shade of purple. Generally, the purples are located between 30 and 70.
4. If you are finished editing, you can press the check mark at the top right corner of the screen to apply the effect and save your photo. If you want to continue editing, you can apply the effect by clicking “apply” and then continue adjusting image.
5. After rendering your image purple, you can now tweak your colors and lighting to refine your image. From the same toolbar as the “colorize” effect, you can adjust saturation, brightness, and contrast, to perfect your photo.
Adding Purple to Your Image Using PicsArt’s Drawing Tool
1. From the main screen, click the “Draw” button and select “Draw on photo”. Open a photo.
2. PicsArt will ask you if you want to crop your image. When you are finished cropping select the checkmark on the bottom right corner of the screen to start drawing.
3. Open the layer tool. This should add a new layer to your photo, which should be selected above the layer that contains your photo. To make your image purple, select the paint bucket in the bottom of the layer menu and select whichever shade of purple you desire.
4. By this point, your image should look like a giant purple box. That is because you have added a complete opaque layer of purple covering your image. By adjusting the opacity slider, you can make this layer more transparent revealing your photo behind it.
5. Instead of adjusting the opacity, you can also blend your two layers together using PicsArt’s various blending options. To do this select the box labeled “Normal” next to the paint bucket. Select from the various blending options like “Lighten” or “Screen” to experiment with different visuals. Remember that you can still play with the opacity to control the intensity of whichever blend you choose.
Swapping In Purple with Color Replace
1. From the home screen, click the “Effect” button, then open your photo. Select Effect from the lower toolbar, and choose Color Splash from the pop-up menu.
2. Choose the Color Replace option.
3. Drag the transparent wheel over your photo to select the color you want to replace with purple.
4. The Effect Setting menu will pop-up automatically. Adjust the color sliders to turn whichever color you selected purple.
5. Press Apply on the top of your screen to save your changes.
