Hi friends,

I have a logo and I want to reduce the no. of colors in it. How I can achieve this?
We want to replace the least used colors with matching other colors in the logo.

I tired it with Image Size effect but it reduces the resolution we need to reduce the colors without affecting the resolution.

Thnx.

Ok, here's what you can do. In any Photoshop, go to Select menu and choose Color Range. From there you can select specific colors and then change them to any color you want. I think that is what you are looking for.

Got a link to your logo? Give you ten to one odds that when you post your logo, you'll have somebody that can fix it for you. Hopefully they will have the courtesy to explain how they did it.

Open your image in photoshop.
Click the "image" menu, then "mode" then "Indexed color"
For palette, use Exact, or local (perceptual)
For colors, 256
Forced: none.
The dither options: Play with them to your liking.
Select the "Preserve Exact Colors" checkbox.
Click OK.

In many cases, this will give horrible results. Not because of the options, but because you're going to 8 bit, and 8 bit sucks for images with lots of color or gradients. For simple logos, with only a few major colors, it should work pretty well, though.

From there, you can save as BMP and the only option you have is 8bit.

Note: These instructions apply to photoshop CS2. Other versions of Photoshop will differ, but should be roughly equivalent.
