I was given a png logo from a client and they want the color changed. I placed the logo in illistrator, embeded, and selected yet the recolor option is greyed out in edit and there's no recolor icon in my tool bar.
Have you tried in Photoshop, superior with raster artwork?
No, but I can try that now.
I hope you will share your findings, Cherry.
png is not vector but if it's a high quality file you could Image Trace then recolor...
Whenever someone autotraces a logo, a litter of kitten is crying.
Better: ask for a vector version.
Or: identify the font. Then re-create the logo.
I said could, not should!
I hope those kittens find a home.
Here is what I would do with a little help from Photoshop (excuse My french UI)
In the link panel I would select to edit the original file
Then in Photoshop I would add a color overlay that can be then changed at any time
Closing and saving the file in Photoshop
Will have an alert box asking to validate the change in Illustrator
And that's it
