ColorizeIt! Color Scheme Editor and Preview with Download

Postby Highway of Life » 05 May 2007, 10:16

This is the best thing since sliced cheese.

A new web-app created by CyberAlien called: ColorizeIt!
http://beta.colorizeit.com/index.php

You can choose a color that exists on the style, then choose what color you want to change it to.
Pick up to four colour layers, see how your phpBB3 forum style could look in Green! or Red! or Pink!
Live preview of your changes, and you can even download your new style. -- Downloads now support multiple language packs.
Give it a try!

Creator/Author: CyberAlien from http://phpbbstyles.com

If you are a Style Author/Creator, read below for submitting your style to ColorizeIt!

When its ready all designers will be able to submit/update styles. It will be free, except for commercial styles - submitting commercial styles will be for a fee. Hovewer there will be a small designer validation process to make sure designers who submit styles are indeed designers, not scammers stealing other people's work (first submitted style will have to pass quick validation, all futher submissions will be automatic). It won't affect anyone here, and its just a precaution measure to avoid scams.

Its rather large project, so it will take a while to be finished. Until then I can add styles manually. If any designer wants to submit a style pm me (here or on phpbb.com or on my forum) zip file and screenshot. Screenshot must be in gif format, width about 400-440px, any height, screenshot should include only parts of style and nothing else, and it should show all colors used in style (including hover colors). Style shouldn't have any flash animation because script cannot parse flash files, it can only parse html/css, gif (including animated), jpg and png files. And try to make sure every part of style has a color assigned, so there would be no browser defaults (such as missing background for <body>), because I'll be upgrading editor to include more features than current hue/saturation basic change.
Watch out! I might do a code wheelie!

The same way you use "levels" in Photoshop.
It takes an image and adjusts colors within the image specific to what colors you choose to have it change.

Well, all the styles that we will have in our DB, all the members will be able to preview, but this is more for style developers or someone who just wants to modify an existing style to fit their color needs.
I don?t think we *need* it on our site... we?ll just add a reference link on the index page here on STG/phpBBAcademy and on the style development forums.

To be a bit more exact.
He uses same algorithm as photoshops hue/saturation algoritmes.

I really love the idea, also the fact that I would not have to produce the colorschemes myself any more, I surely going to release my styles there too.

And the best thing is, it is not only capable of handling phpBB styles, for example you can also edit wordpress styles or other software's styles.
