PNG Color Changer

With the PNG color changer, you can quickly change an existing color in your PNG image (such as blue) to a new color (such as red). When the color is changed, you can also preserve its shades (for example, dark blue will be replaced with dark red, and light blue will be replaced with light red).

PNG Color Tone Changer

With the PNG color tone changer, you can quickly change the shade of all existing colors in your PNG image to a new shade. For example, you can apply a green filter over an image of a red rose and the red rose will now be green (including all its light and dark tones, tints, and reflections).

What is a PNG Color Maker?

What are the most popular color formats?

The most popular formats are colors-by-their-name, hexadecimal, RGB, RGBA, and HSL. The colors-by-their-name format is simply the English name of the color. For example, "red", "green", "gray". The hexadecimal format is a three- or six-digit code representing a color and it usually starts with the hash "#" symbol. For example, #fff and #ffffff is the white color, #000 and #000000 is the black color, and #333 and #333333 is the gray color. The RGB format is an abbreviation for red, green, and blue and is a three-digit code reflecting the amount of each color. For example, RGB(0, 0, 0) is black, RGB(0, 0, 255) is blue, and RGB(255, 255, 0) is yellow. The RGBA format also adds the alpha channel to the color definition, setting its translucency. For example, RGBA(255, 255, 0, 0.5) is 50% transparent yellow color. HSL stands for hue, saturation and lightness and it's a three-digit code reflecting the amount of each color used to create the final color. For example, HSL(66, 100%, 50%) is yellow, HSL(356, 100%, 50%) is red, and HSL(192, 100%, 50%) is light blue.

Where can you use a Grayscale PNG Maker?

A Grayscale PNG Maker is one of our most popular tools and it's used in printing, photography, graphic design, social media, and more. Let's explore each area in more detail. First - printing. To save toner or ink in a color printer, you can first convert PNGs to grayscale mode and then print them in just black and white. Second - photography. You can give your favorite photos a retro look and make them more interesting and mysterious if you apply the grayscale filter on them. The grayscale filter can be also used to create moody, dramatic atmosphere as well as to draw attention to the image. Third - social media. Many popular Instagram accounts use only grayscale tones in their posts to create unique profiles. This allows your profile to stand out and be original, and most importantly attract people to your feed.

Where can you use a PNG Color Adder?

A PNG Color Adder is often used when you want to quickly check how a logo or any other transparent PNG image will look on different backgrounds. For example, if you want to print a logo on a T-shirt but need to decide on which T-shirt color it will look the best, then you can add red or black color to the logo and see how it blends with the background. The user-friendly interface for selecting the fill color and viewing the result takes just a second. This utility has a neat color picker that will help you find the color you're looking for and similar shades. Sometimes a Color Adder is also used together with the PNG Color Remover that lets you remove the existing background color and replace it with a new color.

What is a PNG Color Channel Extractor?

A Color Channel Extractor allows you to extract individual color channels from a PNG format image. There are a dozen different color channel formats and with this extractor, you can individually see each one of them. You can extract the classic RGB/RGBA channels (Red, Green, Blue, and Alpha), then the CMY/CMYK channels (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key), and HSL channels (Hue, Saturation, and Light). Additionally, you can convert the channels to grayscale to see their absolute intensity. This tool is used by many web designers and artists to create abstract art and generate PNG effects. For example, a popular use-case is to convert a full-color PNG to three RGB images and then overlay these three images one on top of another with an offset of a couple of pixels. This produces a red-shift or a blue-shift image.

What is a PNG Color Picker?

A PNG Color Picker allows you to extract the color under the cursor from a PNG image. It has two modes of operation – the first mode selects the exact color under the cursor (with a precision of 1 pixel) and the second mode selects the average color of a group of pixels. For example, you can pick the average color in a group of 5-by-5 pixels (average of 25 pixels). Once a color is selected, you can find all its properties, such as the closest web-safe color name, its hex code, RGB/RGBA code, HSL/HSV/HSI code, LCH/HCL code, and LAB code.

What is a Colorful PNG Maker?

A Colorful PNG Maker is an unique tool for creating arbitrary shape and color PNGs as well as gradient-filled background cover images. A popular use-case of this tool is creating colorful gradient backgrounds for use on social media. As thousands and thousands of posts get published online every hour, it's very difficult to stand out and capture people's attention, and you have to get creative. Adding a linear, radial, or wavy gradient to your post will instantly make it much more attractive and it'll get more views than a post with plain color background. Another popular use-case includes generating custom size and custom color PNGs for writing web tests, as well as creating transparent 1x1 pixel PNGs.

What is a PNG Color Extractor?

A PNG Color Extractor is a program that allows you to extract colors from pictures. It's used to find the dominant colors in PNG images and to analyze their color composition. It extracts the most popular colors as a list and sorts them by their popularity percentage. This output format is very useful for creating custom color palettes. A popular use-case of the Color Extractor is to design web pages that match the color composition of the pictures used on the page. We also added multiple color extraction settings with different output formats that let you sort the colors in the output palette by rainbow, lightness, or darkness. Our user-friendly interface lets you see the extracted palette instantly and download it via a single click.
