We present a new tool for automatic recoloring of web pages. Automatic application of different color palettes to web pages is essential for both professional and amateur web designers. However no existing recoloring tools provide full recoloring for web pages. To recolor web page entirely, we replace colors in .css, .html, and .svg files, and recolor images such as background and navigation elements. We create new color theme based on a color guide image provided by user. Evaluation shows a high level of satisfaction with the quality of palettes and results of recoloring. Our tool is available at
