Hue Rotate

Type of Action: Item Action (to use it, select an item and go to Item>Actions to choose the Action from the list).

What the Action can do: This Action lets you do the following:
  • It lets you change the spectrum of colors used in an image imported into a graphic item so it rotates the colors according to a theoretical "color wheel".
To apply the Action, select a graphic item containing an imported image, go to Item>Actions and choose Hue Rotate. With the item selected, see the options in the Actions palette:

  • Enabled: This option is checked by default. When checked you will see a live preview of the effects applied when options are used in the Actions palette. To see a "before and after" of the original image (with and without the Action applied), switch the Enabled option on and off. Remember to leave it checked when you have finished.
  • Angle: This slider (and value field) controls the amount of degrees the theoretical color wheel is rotated to change the colors of the image to those corresponding to the location in the different part of the color wheel.


Below you can see examples of how the original image (shown first which the Action disabled) will look when the options displayed in the Actions palette alongside each sample has been set up.
