Colour Effects

Last updated: 11 July 2019


This article will show you the different colour effects you can use on your images. 




There are 4 different colour effects in VideoScribe that you can use to give your images different styles.
You can choose from the options using the drop-down menu (A).

Click to jump to the details for full colouroutlinegreyscale or silhouette.

Option 1 - Full Colour effect

With the ‘Full Colour’ effect selected (B), the image will be displayed and drawn in the normal way and will have full colour (C).

Option 2 - Outline

With the 'Outline' effect selected (D) the image will have no colour and will just have outlines (E). The outline colour can be changed by clicking on the colour square (F).

Option 3. Greyscale

With the ‘Greyscale’ effect selected (G) you will see that the image turns into a greyscale version (H). All colours are converted into a shade of grey.

When an image is set to Greyscale, the contrast can be adjusted from 0 to 100% (I). The lower the contrast percentage, the darker the image will become. 

Option 4. Silhouette

When the ‘Silhouette’ effect is selected (J) you will see that the image changed into a shadow or ‘silhouette’ of the image (K). You will not be able to see any of the details of the image, just the shape. The image will have a solid colour fill and the colour can be changed by clicking on the colour square (L).
