How to Change the Color of an Image
Alright, changing selective colors using the hue and saturation tool. This is a nice little technique for isolating specific colors and manipulating them. I’d say I wanted to just change these flowers to a different color without touching any of the green leaves or if I wanted to change the leaves without changing any of the flowers. I can usually go in and use a paint brush tool in color mode and change the color that way if I wanted to but then I got to start watching where I paint and everything.
This is what I like to do, go into your image adjustments, hue/saturation and bring up your hue saturation. Now under the edit where it says master just pick any of these colors here. I usually just take red because it is the first one and then as you can see I’ve got the eyedropper tool selected here and I’m just going to click anywhere on my yellow flower. Now you can see where the sliders change, they moved over. They’re showing me the color range within this area. I’m simply just going to click and drag these sliders together.
Now I’m going to increase the hue to the maximum and what this does is this shows me the area that’s affected. I’m not actually changing and it’s just showing and giving me a preview of the area that will be selected doing this.
Now I’m going to click the Add to sample eyedropper and I’m just going to keep clicking on and click and drag over all my flowers. And as you can see, I’ve now selected all the flowers. Now I can go in with my hue, saturation sliders and I can just change the colors of the flowers without touching the green.
Let’s try it again with the green so I’m going to select red and I am just going to click on here. As you can see the sliders has gone all the way over to the green with some Cyan. So I’m just going to bring this slider over here and bring this slider over here, increase the hue, choose the Add to sample and then just slide around on my green. Now I can actually change the color of just the leaf.
Let’s try another image here. Let’s just see if we can again make like maybe a fall color with the leaves here and the grass. Let’s change that all to say a nice orange so again, my hue, saturation and I’m going to pick on the leaves here. Let’s bring the sliders together, choose the Add to sample, we forgot to increase the hue, saturation and look at that. And let’s just go like that, perfect.
Now if I didn’t want the grass to be changed at all, I can always just go into my history brush just before it, just bring back the original color just like that and see if I can actually change the color of the cart. Now you see I’ve selected all that. I can use the minus tool and just go on the faces, there we go. Let’s change it to a nice blue but I’ve got all the leaves and trees in the back so I’m just going to go and step backwards. Once slap that in hue saturation and we’ll go at a 100%, cool. And let’s try it one more time. Let’s just change the green in the grass here, bring this together. Let’s make it nice and yellow shall we?
So I’m just going to select this here. You don’t want your faces, there we go and let’s go and see if we go to the yellow here, and there we go. Now when you start really it does get a little bit tricky so we’ll go ahead and step backwards, there we go, just like that.
