Color DJ changes the color variation of an image from mild surrealistic color exchange to a real color mess. Follow the steps. 1. Mild surrealistic color exchange by checking Deep Forest or Velvet Dreams or both. 2. Mild effect by using No Red, No Green and No Blue sliders. 3. Correct the colors with Hue and Color cast checkbox (and strength slider). Recolor the whole image one with One Color World checkbox (and strength slider). 4. You can invert the whites with Darkworld checkbox. 5. Bring some mess or intensify the colors with Run sliders. To prevent color cast make sure that the sum of Run to Green and Run from Magenta is equal to 100 and the amount of both "from" or "to" sliders is similar or the same. The closer the sliders to the center, the more acid colors you get. 6. Make a real mess with Mess checkboxes. Feel free to stop when you feel it's enough or go as wild as you wish.
