Image Colorizations

You can create and customize your own colorization settings to use in Spectra/myStratus Desktop, such as black & white, sepia, or other tones and styles. By default you will have the Black & White and Sepia options. You cannot delete these two colorization presets, but you can modify them.

  1. Go to Maintenance > Digital > Image Colorizations to set up your colorization options.

  2. Click Edit or New in the Editing group of the ribbon to modify existing colorizations or add new ones.

  3. On the Image Colorization Detail page, type the Name for the colorization preset. When creating colorization presets you have a number of adjustments you can set, all similar to tools used in Photoshop to correct or enhance images:

    • Brightness & Contrast - Use the sliders to increase or decrease brightness and contrast.

    • HSL Levels - Use the sliders to increase or decrease hue, saturation, or luminance.

    • RGB Levels - Use the sliders to increase or decrease the red, green, and blue levels.

    • Curves - Click Modify Curve Adjustment. Select the channels you would like to adjust and then click and drag to adjust the curves.

    • Levels - Click Modify Level Adjustment. Select the channels that you would like to adjust and then click Black, Gray, and White Input Level settings and/or the Black and White Output Level settings to adjust the levels.

  4. If any of the image adjustment options aren't shown, click Add New to add them.

  5. Click the green arrows in each group of adjustments to determine the order the settings will be applied to the image.

  6. Click OK to save the preset.
