With the touch of a button, you can change the color of your Philips Hue light. While the Hue app comes with several built-in color presets, you can also create your own custom scenes from your own photos.

If you’ve been using Hue lights since the old «Gen 1» app, then this feature will look familiar. You can select an image from your camera and use it as a color template for your light tones. So, for example, if you’re taking a photo of a particularly gorgeous sunset and want to capture that unique shade of orange/purple, you can use that photo to set your hues.
To get started, open the app and tap on the name of the light you want to change the color of. Be sure to tap on the name itself, and not on the round icon, as this will bring up a color picker.
On this screen, turn on the light if it is not. Then click the Scenes tab.
On the Scenes tab, tap the Plus icon at the bottom of the screen, then select Image Scene.
