software for copying colours from one image to another
« on: October 16, 2007, 05:40:55 PM »
Hi,
within the last 6 months or so, I came across a program (freeware) which claimed to let you make any of your images have the "look" of another image.
In particular, if you had an image of say a Rembrandt painting, you could copy that look to one of your own images. No doubt photoshop experts can do that sort of thing, but I haven't got photoshop.

Of course now that I want to play with it for a particular purpose, I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it or what it was called. Does anyone know of it?
thanks
tony

Was it something like this color palette generator?  Or color hunter

No, the idea was you selected a source image, and a target image, clicked a button and your target image would take on the look and feel of the source image
Thanks for trying tho!

I remember reading about that trick in photoshop a while back - here on Lifehacker.  The second-last comment on that page mentions an irfanview plugin called Metrix, which might be an expiring Beta.  Is that nearer to what you were looking for....?

Suleika, I just tried Metrix in PSP.. it worked a treat, so thanks heaps. You were right on the money with the lifehacker article too.
