Create theme colors from a photo

Documents look great when you match themes with photos - and we make this easy to do by allowing a document’s theme colors to be based on the predominant colors in an image or logo. 

The themes take colors from the photos in these examples - both shapes and text.

Tap a photo to select it - then Colors from the properties panel then Get Theme Colors from current image from the Photo colors panel.

You can also change your theme colors from the Document colors panel which appears as part of Document properties.

So here for example, we grab a template - change the photo, and then update the theme colors for a more pleasing result

What's going on?

When you apply the photo colors as a theme this is what is happens...

  1. Our color library references the selected image and returns a maximum of 5 main colors with a minimum of 1 color from the image - with the new theme colors appearing in the color editor.

  2. We also create 4 named shades of the new main Theme Colors. 

  3. The named theme color Text becomes a darker shade of Theme color 1.

  4. With inverse color schemes ie those with light text on dark backgrounds, the text theme color becomes a lighter shade of Theme color 1.
