Color Splash™ lets you quickly and easily give photos a dramatic look by converting them to black and white, while keeping your chosen details in color.

Use your finger as a brush to "paint" sections of your image black and white, or to bring back the original color. Zooming in and out using the two-finger pinching gesture allows you to work on details with pixel-accuracy.

- A short tutorial clearly explains how to use the app and all its features.
- Share your edited images with friends via email or by uploading them to Facebook
- Save multiple sessions to resume your work later.
- Undo any number of accidental brush strokes.
- Adjust brush properties such as brush size, softness and opacity.
- An alternative view mode highlights the regions that will remain in color with a red tint. This makes it easier to see and adjust the boundaries between color and black & white regions.

I love how easy this app is to use. It’s kind of a one trick app, it does nothing except make a photo black and white and then lets you brush on the color you already have on the photo. I would expect to get something this for free. I would not buy this app if I could go back and do it again. It needs more functionality. Ability to tone down certain colors or make specific color less. Example of this would be if a image had too much yellow in a specific part of the picture.

One of my all time apps


I hope the developer will always up grade this app as Apple upgrades their software.



Would be better if it did not shrink the size of the file. I wanted to print a large poster of a print I have but the app keeps reducing my 6.5MB pic to 2MB. I can't print a large poster from that. Good for small projects and the outcome is cool though.

Developer Response

Color Splash preserves the full resolution of the image and uses a very high quality JPEG compression. Therefor there should be no loss in visual quality at all and printing a large poster will not be a problem as long as the resolution of the original image is high enough.
In general, file size is not a good proxy for image quality. For printing it is best to look at the resolution of the image (measured in pixels) and not file size.
