TIPS AND TRICKS TO NAIL THE COLOR SPLASH EFFECT

Color splash effect is when you turn your photos into black-and-white and retain some vivid colors on certain parts of your photo to create a drama. This has to be done the right way, though, to nail that picturesque masterpiece. 

Here are some tips and tricks to nail the color splash effect for your photo collage!

1. Choose the Right Photos

While the color splash effect can surely bring out the best aspects of your image, this won’t work well on all of your photos. While there are no wrong photos for the color splash effect, some pictures are better than the other.

For example, pick a picture with lots of vibrant colors across the entire photo and make sure the part of the photo you will apply color splash takes up a large percentage of the photo. Also, if you choose a too small subject from the photo, the effect won’t look good either.

2. Be Spontaneous

Now, this might seem to contradict our first tip but hear us out. It’s true that you must be mindful of the subject you will apply color splash. But since you can erase the effect in just one stroke, why not be spontaneous and experiment?

Maybe you are eyeing this particular subject, but why not switch up to something from the background? Why not apply color splash to random parts of your photo collage? Who knows? A surprise gem is yet to be found.

3. Make It Subtle

The first thing that will come to mind when doing the color splash effect is to go vibrant and bold. But, do you know that it can also be soft and subtle? You might be surprised that using light shades can yield gorgeous results.

To do this, why not choose a photo with a bright background and focus on a subject with faint colors but still has shades you can highlight? There’s no harm in trying. (wink)

4. Use Your Mind’s Eye

When you do photo editing, your mind may seem like it’s getting a serious workout. While cShot Collage Maker Pro does make editing your photo fast and easy, you wouldn’t want to test every single idea. That would be so exhausting.

So before you apply color splash to your photo collage, spend some time just looking at the photo and imagining how you want the finished image to look. While happy accidents from spontaneity happen, sometimes having a plan in mind is a dependable approach. Try to be adventurous without losing your focus.

5. Do A Clean Finish

What makes the color splash effect so fascinating is the sharpness of the edit resulting from its clean finish. Be sure to never leave out any residual amounts of colors where they don’t belong. Good thing, cleaning up any leftover colors on your photo collage is a breeze. Just click on the eraser just beside the marker size adjuster, delete the unwanted colors and you’re good to go!

Why Apply Color Splash Effect On Your Photo Collage

The color splash effect highlights a particular part of your photos and draws people’s attention to the details you want them to notice. For example, many advertisers use this effect in creative ways to draw the potential customer’s eye to the most colorful or most “alive” thing in the image. 

It’s true that the color splash effect can create a special focus on the subject you choose. But, it doesn’t mean that you have to use it all the time. The cShot Collage Maker Pro’s color splash feature is an incredible tool that brings flair, style, and excitement to a picture. But what makes this effect special is that it is only meant for certain occasions and fairly specific moments. 

This may sound vague now, but as you get to know the tool better and get to practice using it more, you will be able to apply color splash to the right photo collages like a Pro!
