    Using Tint to Color Images

    I'm in the process of updating our company std to include more realistic render materials
    We do a lot of warehouse & factories, that use a lot of long run metal
    I know that I can use the Color-bond Library, but we tend to use other profiles
    I have a few simple white & shadow images etc of what we have, but the thing that has got me stumped is the coloring
    I'm trying to get around having to have a image of each profile & for each color

    Is using the Tint function an OK way of altering the colors of Materials?
    In essence I want to use only a single Image, then have multiple Tints for the different color options?

    Am I going about this the wrong way?

    I've used it to tweak materials when they don't render quite correctly but never in the way you are looking to do - although it would make life a lot easier. In the image attached the brick on the right has a tint to correct the pink that it rendered with. Material map didn't change.

    Tint works well... But be aware that it does not work in the cloud rendering environment....
