Theme

Learn how easily customize the color palettes of individual tools in PhotoEditor SDK for Web.

Dark Theme Light Theme

Our PhotoEditor SDK UI comes with two themes light and dark. Defaults to dark . The color palette consists of 10 default colors out of the box, from which a theme is created for the UI. To make the integration of PhotoEditor SDK in your app seamless, the theme customizations can be done on three levels.

Colors#

You could just change the primary to get the primary color overall as accent color in the UI.

Here the color values can be web colors, hex, rgb() or rgba() in string format.

JavaScript
const editor = await PhotoEditorSDKUI.init({
theme: 'light',
custom: {
themes: {
light: {
primary: 'palevioletred',
},
},
},
});

Additionally, the both UIs allows you to easily and individually customize each one of these colors for each section on the UI that uses them.

JavaScript
const editor = await PhotoEditorSDKUI.init({
theme: 'light',
custom: {
themes: {
light: {
tooltip: {
background: 'darkgray',
},
},
},
},
});

Here is the list of all colors you can customize. Refer to the nomenclature to understand the naming convention.

Typography#

you can customize the font that you load for the PhotoEditor SDK for any theme.

JavaScript
const editor = await PhotoEditorSDKUI.init({
theme: 'dark',
custom: {
themes: {
dark: {
typography: {
fontURI: './fonts/imgly_font_aleo_bold.woff', // font path relative to font assets
fontFamily: 'Aleo',
format: 'woff',
provider: 'file',
// Most users load font while initializing their app,
// In that case, you can choose to skip loading it again
skipLoading: false,
},
},
},
},
});

Moreover, you can load font from Google Fonts.

JavaScript
const editor = await PhotoEditorSDKUI.init({
theme: 'light',
custom: {
themes: {
light: {
typography: {
provider: 'google',
fontFamily: 'Quicksand',
// Most users load font while initializing their app
// In that case, you can choose to skip loading it again
skipLoading: false,
},
},
},
},
});

Shape#

Border radius is one of the important part of any design system. To make PhotoEditor SDK UI shape similar to your design system, you can configure shape object in theme.

JavaScript
const editor = await PhotoEditorSDKUI.init({
theme: 'dark',
custom: {
themes: {
dark: {
shape: {
/**
* Border Radius for small sized components,
* Color Selection, Checkbox
* */
radiusSmall: 2,
/**
* Border Radius for medium sized components,
* Button, Tooltip, Cards, Dropdown, Color Picker, Input
* */
radiusMedium: 4,
/**
* Border Radius for large sized components,
* Modal
* */
radiusLarge: 4,
},
},
},
},
});
