Imagine taking a picture, and within a few flicks you have changed the colors of complete surfaces or areas within the scene. ColorChange allows you to take any image and manipulate the colors within the image to allow you to visualize what a room, landscape, person, or object would look like as a different color. No need for labor intensive area selection - with its unique "Magic" selection tool, ColorChange can easily select the desired areas of your image, and lets you change the colors within seconds of using the app. Make a persons skin green, the sky yellow, wash an entire image with color highlights, or paint your walls black!
ColorChange is perfect for interior designers, decorators, or do-it-yourselfers looking to choose that perfect paint color. It is the first tool designed specifically for the iPhone that gives you timely visualization of your next painting or decorating project - never pick a bad color again! It is also great for people that want a versatile toolbox to do color editing of images on their iPhone. With the simple but rich set of tools provided, virtually any image effect is possible. From washing entire images in color tones to highlighting or de-saturating areas of an image, anything is possible!
The "Magic" selection tool uses a combination of edge detection and adaptive smoothing to help you select areas of your image to manipulate. By default it is designed to work with the normal lighting of indoor iPhone photos, and can be adjusted for particularly dark or bright images. In addition to the "Magic" selection tool, you can select areas of your image by defining a polygon, tracing a region, or painting. You can then selectively remove areas of the selection with the eraser tool.
Choosing the target color is performed with a set of 'Hue', 'Saturation', and 'Brightness' slider controls that let you choose any color of the rainbow. As you adjust the sliders, the selections in the image will automatically update to show the color changing in real time. A full screen color swatch can be opened to provide more information on the chosen color for automatic or manual paint matching. An additional 'Blend' slider allows you to specify the intensity of the chosen color against the image - with it, you can quickly preview the original unaltered image (when the slider is at the far left) and gradually blend in your chosen color up to an overly intensified version (when the slider is at the far right).

Ratings and Reviews
Nice for trying paint schemes
This little app works nicely for trying out ideas you may have for painting your house, or just about anything really. Plenty of tools to make nice masks.
I'd love the ability to have two sets of masks as almost every paint scheme has a main color and an accent. Right now I had to commit one of my colors to try the other.
Great for walls
I'm glad I found this app. I wish it could do more such as select a color from the photo instead of trying to find it on the slider and also would be great if it worked on furniture but for .99 I can see my walls a different color before I waste time and money on a paint I may not like and that makes this app a good one in my book. Thanks!
Would give zero stars if I could
This app does not work as advertised. I wanted to use it to try different colors on a bookcase, but the app consistently selected the entire room and not just the one piece of furniture. Waste of $.99
