This is a simple browser-based utility that reduces the number of colors in Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPG/JPEG) pictures. As soon as you paste a JPG/JPEG picture in the input area, the utility will limit and merge its color tones, and create a JPG with a decreased color count in the output area. You can specify the new color count in the option and also try the gray tone reduction option. Created by mad scientists from team Browserling.
With this online program, you can change the color palette of a JPG/JPEG photo and reduce its color space. This operation is also often called quantization and the output photo is called a quantized photo. By default, JPG pictures contain 16 million colors (full RGB spectrum) but with this tool, you can make it have any number of colors, such as 256 colors (as in GIFs), or 8 colors (as in BMPs). Similarly, you can create a JPG consisting of only two color tones (called a binary picture). You can also turn a picture into an abstract painting consisting of only several separate color segments. To do this, you just need to specify the desired number of colors in the options. For an additional effect, you can convert a JPG into grayscale before its colors are reduced. Jpgabulous!
In this example, we convert a full-color JPG photo of a medium-coated dog to a four-color JPG. The conversion algorithm automatically analyzes the input photo and creates an optimal color palette with four colors and re-paints the original JPG with these four colors. Even though there are just four colors in the output JPG, it conveys the shape, style, and details of the dog using continuous color segments. (Source: Pexels.)
This example creates a 12-color JPEG image of the northern lights. It independently selects a group of colors that are the closest match and draws a JPEG so that it seems as if it is drawn using many more colors. (Source: Pexels.)
In this example, we convert a picture of someone holding a handful of blueberries to a 10-color grayscale JPG. To do this, we upload the picture into the input, activate the convert to grayscale option, and set the number of output colors equal to 10. (Source: Pexels.)
