Layer Color. Specifies the foreground color and opacity of solid color and effect layers, and the text box fill color for text layers.



Gray, RGB, or CMYK color value, with or without alpha.

In case of image and text layers, color= fills transparent and semi-opaque areas within the bounding rectangle of the layer with the specified color beforerotate= and extend= are applied.


Layer attribute. Applies to current layer or to layer 0 if layer=comp.

color is assumed to exist in the working color space corresponding to the pixel type of color. color is converted accurately if the layer image has a different pixel type at the time of merge.


No default for solid color and effect layers; a color must be specified. Defaults to 0,0,0,0 (fully transparent) for image and text layers.


In the following template fragment we set the text background to a 50% opaque color and use the same color to add a semi-transparent 10 pixel border around the layer 2 image:

…&$color=214,245,130,128& layer=1&text=my-text-string&color=$color$&… layer=2&src=myRootId/myImageId&extend=10,10,10,10&bgColor=$color$&…
