Using the Replace Color Tool

Using the Replace Color tool, you can change one color for another, with just a few clicks! The Replace Color tool is located in the Edits section of our Photo Editor. 

This tool is only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription here!

Step 1: Open your image in the Photo Editor.

Step 2: Select the Edit section from the left-hand menu, then click on Replace Color.

Step 3: Click the box next to Source Color to open the Color Picker. You can use the Eyedropper tool to select a new color from your image, choose one from the color spectrum, or enter a specific HEX code.

Step 4: Click the box next to Target Color to open the Color Picker and select the color you'd like to replace the Source Color.

Pro Tip: The Reset button can be used at any time to revert the color selections. 

Step 5: Use the Tolerance setting to adjust the color sensitivity of the Source Color. This also helps regulate the area that the effect is applied to.

Step 6: Use the Intensity slider to fade between the amount of the Source Color and the Target color. The higher the Intensity setting, the more of the Source Color will appear. The lower the Intensity, the more of the Source Color will show through.

Pro Tip: Use Select mode and select the region you would like to apply the effect to, as well as adjust the Brush Settings to Customise the Effect Area.

Step 7: By default, Preserve Luminosity is selected. Preserve Luminosity will preserve the contrast and detail of the original image. Uncheck the box next to Preserve Luminosity to turn this feature off.

Pro Tip: When replacing a darker color with a much lighter color, prior to using Replace Color, you may want to make some adjustments to the lighting of the image using the Levels tool, to brighten areas of the image. Slowly increase the Gamma slider to gradually increase the lightness of the image.  

Step 8: Click Apply to save your changes.

Step 9: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
