Selective Color Change

Selective color change is a wonderful digital retouching tool for your images that allows altering only one specific color while keeping the rest of them unchanged. With reaConverter's latest version, you can easily use a color picker to select the original and the replacement color. For example, you can choose to change picture background from one color to another.

reaConverter allows you to control the intensity of the change, by offering a handy scroll bar to adjust Tolerance. All the changes you operate on your image can be checked in real time by ticking the Preview box.
