Want to change the colors in your logo or graphics without PhotoShop and without hiring a graphic designer?
Well, you are in luck, my DIY friend!
UPDATE: While the method below stills works, this post has been updated with a newer and easier to use tool here: DIY Color and Background Replace
I just created a video tutorial for you on the Immensely Social YouTube channel that will show you how to do just that. (Video is below if you want to scroll down and watch.)
I have been really into color lately- more than usual. I am even taking a Future Learn course at the moment called The Power Of Colour via KLC School Of Design
(It’s free so click the link if interested. It’s fascinating!).
Feeling a bit dull with the muted tones of Immensely Social, I decided it was time to switch things up. I have been going bolder the last few videos over on YouTube so thought I would pop my logo colors too.
Nothing wrong with the old colors, but I like to dress very classic with bold pops, so wanted to make my branding more authentic to me.
Here’s the thing, I don’t have or use Photoshop. I tend to stick with easy and free online tools. I thought about hiring someone on Fiverr.com to change the colors for me, but $5, now $6 with the fees, for each graphic seemed wasteful. Well, I figured out how to do it easily myself and I’m passing on the knowledge!
If you know someone else who could use this tip too, send it over to them!
All you need are two Free Online Tools to follow along with me.
Tool #1: Colorzilla
The first is a Google Chrome extension called ColorZilla it is an eyedropper tool that allows you to choose a color from any page.
Tool #2: Pixlr
The second is a website called Pixler. Pixler is an online graphic editor with PhotoShop type features that you can use for free.
Using the color dropper, I am going to grab the color codes from the current Immensely Social logo and show you how I changed it from the old, more muted colors. Check out the side by side!
Once you know how to do it, it only takes seconds. Watch how easy it is:
Edited the Facebook Page Banner this way too. You can check it out here.
