Matching colours

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm trying my hand at updating an airport,and although i have a rough idea on blending the airport into the exsisting surrounding scenery,however the bits of photo scenery outside the airport that i am still using dont match the colouring of the textures of ftx global

Is there some tool or other that will help blend the colours to match a bit better

Thanks

Depends what image editing tool you're using. If you have Photoshop (or also might work with PSP) you might find this forum thread helpful: http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/how-to-quickly-color-correct-raw-sattelite-images.18417/

 

For a quick and dirty method, you can use a screenshot instead of trying to locate the landclass tiles. What I do is clear the weather, set time of day to noon and then take an overhead screenshot. Then I just use the color matching feature built into photoshop using a polygon selection of the landclass areas of the screenshot image for sampling. You can make some small image adjustments from there to fine-tune but I find this gets close enough much of the time.
