Color Blend Description

Merge luminosity from black-and-white image with color image for enhanced visual appeal and detail retention.

Color Blend:

The ColorBlend node is designed to merge a black-and-white image with a color image, effectively transferring the luminosity from the black-and-white image to the color image. This process enhances the color image by replacing its luminosity channel with that of the black-and-white image, resulting in a blended image that retains the color information while adopting the luminosity characteristics of the black-and-white image. This technique is particularly useful for artists looking to combine the contrast and detail of a black-and-white image with the vibrant hues of a color image, creating a visually appealing result that leverages the strengths of both input images.

Color Blend Input Parameters:


The bw_layer parameter represents the black-and-white image that will provide the luminosity information for the blending process. This image is converted to grayscale, and its luminosity channel is used to replace the luminosity channel of the color image. The quality and contrast of the black-and-white image directly impact the final blended result, making it crucial to choose an image with the desired luminosity characteristics.


The color_layer parameter is the color image that will be blended with the black-and-white image. This image is converted to the LAB color space, where its luminosity channel is replaced by the luminosity channel of the black-and-white image. The color information from this image is preserved, while its luminosity is adjusted based on the black-and-white image, resulting in a harmonious blend of color and luminosity.

Color Blend Output Parameters:


The output parameter is an IMAGE that represents the final blended result. This image combines the color information from the color_layer with the luminosity from the bw_layer, producing a visually enhanced image that leverages the strengths of both input images. The output image is in BGR color space, ready for further processing or display.

Color Blend Usage Tips:

  • Ensure that the black-and-white image (bw_layer) has the desired contrast and detail, as its luminosity will significantly influence the final blended image.
  • Use high-resolution images for both bw_layer and color_layer to achieve the best quality in the blended result.
  • Experiment with different black-and-white images to see how varying luminosity characteristics affect the final output.

Color Blend Common Errors and Solutions:

"Input image dimensions do not match"

  • Explanation: This error occurs when the dimensions of the bw_layer and color_layer do not match.
  • Solution: Ensure that both input images have the same dimensions. You can resize one of the images to match the other before using the ColorBlend node.

"Unsupported image format"

  • Explanation: This error occurs when the input images are not in a supported format.
  • Solution: Convert the input images to a supported format such as JPEG or PNG before using the ColorBlend node.

"Invalid image data"

  • Explanation: This error occurs when the input images contain invalid or corrupted data.
  • Solution: Verify the integrity of the input images and ensure they are not corrupted. Use image editing software to check and repair any issues with the image files.
