Hi. How can we help?
We offer 2 different account types. Our Basic account is free to use, requires no registration, and provides access to numerous essential effects and features. Click here to start editing with Colorcinch Basic.
Our Plus account costs $5.99 per month or a 33% discounted price of $47.88 if billed annually (once a year). Colorcinch Plus provides access to all of our premium effects and features, all graphics and icons, higher resolution export options and much more! Click here to see all Plus features.
No, you don’t need to create an account to use Colorcinch Basic. Creating an account is only necessary when you upgrade to Colorcinch Plus in order to manage your projects and subscription.
Colorcinch is a web-based platform, which means as long as you have a good internet connection and a decent machine, it’ll work on Mac, Windows PC and Linux.
Nothing. Colorcinch is entirely a web-based platform, which means no downloading or installing of any apps to your computer is necessary. As long as you meet our minimum requirements, you can access Colorcinch online from anywhere in the world, on any machine.
Yes, you may sell or otherwise commercially benefit from projects and photos created and/or edited with Colorcinch Basic and Plus accounts. However, shared use of your Colorcinch account with others is strictly prohibited.
In addition to being able to save and store editable project files in your Colorcinch account, you can also export your photos in JPG, PNG and PDF formats (at up to 400 DPI).
To save a project, navigate to: Save – Save as Project. Next, give it a name and hit Save.
To open a project, navigate to: Open – Open Project. Select a project you’d like to open.
To export a project, navigate to: Save – My Computer. Next, give it a name and select which file format you’d like to export it as. Hit Save.
NOTE: The quality slider allows you to set the size and quality of the export file. For best print results, we recommend exporting as PDF at 400 DPI.
Saved projects can be accessed and managed from 2 locations:
- Navigate to your Colorcinch account, then click Projects link to access, manage and delete your saved projects.
- Alternatively, navigate to Colorcinch editor, click on Open – Open Project. From here projects can be renamed, loaded or deleted.
Colorcinch allows you to save (AKA heart) your favorite effects, filters, overlays, masks and frames.
Take Effects for example: as you’re browsing different effects, to save an effect to your favorites, simply click the heart-shaped icon in the top-right corner of the effect’s preview thumbnail. That’s it.
To later access and reuse your favorites, navigate to Effects left menu, then click Favorites.
The same process applies to all other elements such as filters and overlays.
Not only does Colorcinch give you access to one of the largest libraries of filters and effects, you get more control over them, too.
The quickest way to adjust the intensity of an effect is to first apply the effect by clicking on it, and then simply adjusting the intensity slider that appears right over the preview thumbnail.
Need more control? Click the tune icon that appears in the top-right corner of the effect’s preview thumbnail (next to the heart icon) to open a new window with additional settings and sliders that allow you to fine-tune the look and feel of the effect until you’re happy with it.
Colocinch makes it incredible easy to add and fully customize your text.
To add text to a project, navigate to Text left menu and click ADD TEXT button.
A line of text will appear in your project. Double-click the newly created text to start typing. Customize the overall look and feel of your text in the left menu. You can change default text attributes such as font, size, color, letter spacing, line height and opacity.
Furthermore, if you enable Background, Outline and/or Shadow on/off switches, additional controls will appear to customize those attributes to your liking (e.g. background color, padding and style).
Feel free to drag and reposition your text anywhere in the project.
Colorcinch features one of the largest and ever-growing libraries of vector graphics and icons available in an editor.
To add graphics to your project, navigate to Graphics left menu. From here, you can upload your own graphics by clicking the UPLOAD YOUR OWN button, or search our hand-picked collection.
Alternatively, you can also expand the left menu by clicking the expend icon for a more comfortable browsing experience.
Selecting graphics will automatically add them to Your Graphics panel. From this panel you can add graphics to your project by either double-clicking an item or dragging it onto your project.
To remove items from Your Graphics panel, click the X icon in the top-right corner of the item’s thumbnail.

It’s important to note that in order to achieve great print results, your original project photo should be large enough to avoid drastic scaling or pixel distortion. For example, if you’re planning to print a 24x17in. poster, it’s unrealistic to expect a 600x400px resolution photo to look good.
With that said, there are way to make sure you maximize the quality of your print.
When ready to export, we recommend selecting PDF file format with a DPI value of 400.
Navigate to Save – My Computer – PDF tab.
