    Default Matching pictures colours hues of a photos on a wb page

    Hi long time no posting - been out of the loop.. but I hope TG can help.

    I have an image on a web page that has an overlay, together when using a colour picker it forms the majority colour 212C40. I have another photo that I want to use on the same page and want it to have have the same colour. Using a colour picker most of it is green 3F7C99 how can you work out what hex overlay I need to add to the 3F7C99 to make 212C40 without guessing. Adding the original overlay creates a blue and not grey.

    Or is there another way in xara I have not found?

    TIA

    Having a tough time wrapping what is left of my mind around this.

    Are you looking for a neutral color that will work with both photos?

    If this is what you are trying to do then maybe this will help.

    Place both photos over a large 50% black rectangle.

    Select the rectangle. Open the color editor, switch to HSV mode and move the Hue slider around until you arrive at something that compliments the two photos. Then you can make that color lighter or darker, more or less saturated as you wish.

    If this was not your question, please skip ahead to the next question.

    Thx for the help gary reply below

    Are you looking for a neutral color that will work with both photos? NO SORRY BOTH NEED TO END UP AS 212C40. APART FROM RANDOMLY TRYING TO GET TO THE FINAL ANSWER WITH THE PHOTO IN XARA AND USING THE PHOTO ADJUSTMENTS I WAS LOOKING FOR A SHORT CUT PERHAPS IN XARA OR ONLINE A WEBPAGE / TOOL SOMEONE HAD COME ACROSS WHEREBY IF YOU PUT IN THE 3RD COLOUR AND PUT IN THE FIRST THE SECOND IS WORKED OUT FOR YOU SO I COULD THEN PUT AN OVERLAY AND PLAY WITH TRANSPARENCY TO GET TO THE 3RD COLOUR - DOES THAT MAKE SENSE???

    what sort of overlay - an overlay in xara ? - an overlay in HTML ?....

    if in xara, what type is it

    btw hex 3f7c99 is not a green hue, it's blue - like Gary I'm a bit confused here

    it would also be useful to know what hex the original picture is without the overlay, and what hex the 'blue' is that you get with the overlay over the new picture

    It's not like it's a green/blue like aqua, it's very blue ...

    FYI.

    I don't remember seeing ANY program that will tell you what colour overlay you need to use on a 3F7C99 picture so that the final version has a tone matching 212C40.

    Even though you don't want to guess, I think that's what you are going to end up doing.

    is the overlay actually necessary - you might be able to colourise a copy directly, but a task more suited to photoshop I think...
