Free! Macros: Dyadic Colour Grading (Complementary and Asymmetric)

2 min read

Here are a free set of 24 macros that will give you a very simple way to push colours in the image towards pairs of colours, both the symmetrical classic Complementary and also Asymmetric pairs. Each macros strengthens and spreads two colours (hence the term ‘dyadic’). You can click one macro after another to try them out one after another. In the controls given, ‘Rotate’ and ‘Shift’ adjust colour and ‘Strength’ adjusts Opacity (try them out!).

The download pages for the macros (including more information on them) is here:

Note: At the time of production, if you run a macro when a group is selected, the group will be rasterized (turned into a pixel layer), which can be a real problem. This bug has been reported and may get fixed in future. In the mean time, if you have a group that this macro creates selected (is blue), click Select/Deselect Layers before running another macro.
