It’s the color splash. Usually, the image background is black and white or perhaps a sepia tone, but the front most important object is in full on color. A color splash. How can a Mac user do the same thing? Well, Photoshop works. Or, save lots and lots of money and use this app instead.
One. Trick. Pony.
Creating a splash of color on an object where everything else in the photo is black and white once required a number of tedious steps with masks and brushes.
With Color Splash Pro on a Mac most of those steps are eliminated. Import a photo. Adjust the photo for the type of non-color background you want.
Then, simply use the adjustable digital brush to add color back into the selection or object that you want (adjusts to brush size and softness).
The only way it would be easier to get that trendy splash of color is if someone else did it for you.
Color Splash Pro has a few extra tools to make the colored object more precise. For example, zoom into the image so color is applied only to those pixels that need color.
The end result speaks for itself.
How can you make a color splash photo easier than that? Add a photo, remove or change the color, brush the color back in to the object you want to stand out.
Color Splash Pro exports finished photos as JPG, PNG, and TIFF images.
You also have a few purchase choices not found in many other Mac apps. Color Splash Pro can be purchased on the Mac App Store, but that doesn’t come with a trial version. The app developer’s site, though, has a trial version for free.
There’s also the option to buy direct, or as a less expensive bundle with other photo enhancement apps, some of which, like PicSketch, I’ve used and reviewed.
It’s yet another one-trick-pony app that’s been added to my growing collection.
