Polarr Photo Editor
Beautiful, lightweight, powerful photo editing for Windows.
If you follow our Photoshop tutorials on the blog, you probably read this one about how to add a dash of color to black and white images. But if this is already too difficult for you, don't panic, because there is another way.
Simply use Tint Photo Editor and you'll be able to apply this attractive color effect to your pictures, in such a way that only a few selected areas on the image are colored while the rest remains in black and white. It's an easy method to make certain elements in the picture stand out above everything else.
Tint Photo Editor is very simple to use: load the image you want to apply the effect to and select how many color areas you'd like to have. The program works better with images that have quite a few elements on them (a bunch of flowers, for example) and with as many color areas as possible.
The program will then generate a different version of the image with different colored areas. Just pick the one you like best – or combine several of them – and you're ready to save the result.
Tint Photo Editor is perfect for those who don't feel like using a massive app like Photoshop only to add a simple color effect, but it may be too basic for actual Photoshop users. Also, I didn't like the fact that you can't actually control the areas in the photo that the program will color. Finally, be aware that the program opens up a new instance everytime you create a new photo effect.
With Tint Photo Editor you can easily add a beautiful color effect to your photos, to turn them into black and white images with a nice dash of color.
