The Colorize group contains controls to set the coloring of the effect.
The Colorize... pop-up can be set to:
- None - No coloring is performed. The colors of the source image are used. This should be used, for example, when simulating light shining through a multicolored window, or shooting out from a multicolored logotype.
- One Color - With this setting, one single color can be picked and the entire effect is colorized in that color.
- 3-Color Gradient - Three colors (Highlights, Midtones and Shadows) can be selected.
- 5-Color Gradient - Five colors can be selected.
|Original Image||None||3 Color Gradient|
Below these options are the 3-Color Gradient presets. When one of the presets is selected, the three colors are updated (Highlights, Midtones and Shadows) and then the pop-up goes back to the 3-Color Gradient mode and the colors can be tweaked.
After these follow the 5-Color Gradient presets. When one of the presets is selected, the five colors are updated and then the pop-up menu goes back to the 5-Color Gradient mode and the colors can be tweaked.

- Lightness - Use lightness values.
- Luminance - Use luminance values.
- Alpha - Use alpha channel.
- Alpha Edges - Use the edges of the alpha channel. When this mode is active, a new slider at the bottom of the colorizing group is enabled. This is called Edge Thickness and controls how thick the alpha edges should be.
