Open the image you would like to change the color of. Select the area of color that you want to change. Use the polygonal lasso tool to make your selection. Click around the area's edges until you reach the beginning, creating a loop. To add multiple areas, hold down the "Shift" key and click around the area to add to current selection.
With Photoshop, it's possible to change the color of just about anything you have an image of. If you have a picture and you would like to change the color of your eyes, hair, or clothing, it can be done. Get creative and get imaginative by learning how to change a color in Photoshop.
Things You'll Need
- Adobe Photoshop
Click "Quick Mask Mode." This button is located just below the colors on the right-hand side. Your selected area will appear in normal colors and the rest of your image (not selected) will appear in transparent red.
Select the paint brush tool and set the brush size to 11 to 13. Ensure that your colors are set to black and white. Painting over your image in black adds to the selection, and painting in white deletes area from selection. (This will fine tune the selection you made in Step 2).
Click the "Normal Mode" button. This button is located to the left of the Quick Mask Mode button. Create a new layer with Adjustment Layer (circle icon located at bottom of the Layers Palette). Select "Hue/Saturation." Play around with the Hue and Saturation sliders until you reach your desired color.
Tips & Warnings
- Use hard-edge brushes. Using soft edge brushes will give you inaccurate results. You also may need to change the brush sizes to accommodate for details in your image. A small brush will work much better for detailed areas.
- Subtle changes in Hue and Saturation are important to retain details, such as textures and shadows, of the original object.
