How to Change the Color of a House in Photoshop

Decking out a home in a new shade of paint can give the property a higher resale value, but it is also a massive undertaking and large expense. In some areas with neighborhood communities, new color may not be allowed. For a quick color change with no expense, effort or permissions required, you can use Adobe Photoshop. Adobe's graphic software program offers more shades of paint than a paint shop and the tools to slap on a new coat of color.
