Colour Selection

A note about colour depth.

Because Leonardo is such an amazingly wonderful program it will allow you to view images on a device which has a different colour depth to the one the image was originally created on, while retaining the original colour depth. For example. If you create a Leonardo image on a colour device it is possible to beam the image to a greyscale device, view it and then beam it back to the colour device with all the colour information intact. Of course it will display in greyscale on the greyscale device. If you go to open a Leonardo image and it is of a different colour depth to the device you are opening Leonardo will give you the option of converting the image to the colour depth of your device or of retaining the original colour depth. If you choose to retain the original colour depth then the image will open in view only mode. i.e. You can use the Zoom and Pan tools only. If you wish to edit the image you will need to convert the image to your device's colour depth. Once you convert an image it will lose any information that your device cannot display. e.g. If you open a colour image on a greyscale device and you choose to convert it to greyscale then colour information will be lost.

In Leonardo it is possible to set the Stroke (outline) colour and the fill colour. You can select a stroke or fill colour prior to drawing a shape or line, or, if you have an object selected and you change the stroke and/or fill colour the new colour/s will be applied to the selected object.
