Color Overlay

recolor raster images in Figma
Color Overlay

As I  began using Figma as my primary design tool a few years ago, and so I was looking for ways to make my workflow more efficient.

When I realised Figma had a pretty well documented and easily accessible plugin API, I built this plugin to save myself all the time spent booting up Photoshop and recolouring images there (it was a lot).

Making this plugin was actually made substantially easier due to the fact that Figma’s plugin API is amazingly well documented.


  • Recolor any raster image containing solid/transparent colours directly in Figma (it works best with images containing solid fills and colors)
  •  You can also remove colours from an image. This allows users to create transparent pngs on the fly.
