Changing colors in photoshop:

One of these days i’ll have something more personal to post about, but all i’ve been doing lately is working! lol. So until something interesting happens in my life, here’s another photoshop tutorial.

Please note that i’m using CS3. I am pretty sure that this will work in earlier versions but dont know for sure. This is a very basic and easy tutorial but it will help you out a lot i hope.

Okay first open your image. This one is courtesy of stockxpert.com.

On this tutorial i’m going to show you how to change the colors of one of these blocks.

Go to SELECT, COLOR RANGE and this box will come up.

Select the color you want with the eyedropper tool. If you have various shades of one color use the +eyedropper to add more, or the -one if you make a mistake. After selecting your color adjust the fuzziness until you have everything selected in the black box. Click ok.

A selection will appear around the color you selected. (In this one, I selected the red from the top block.)

If the moving selection lines annoy you can hide it by hitting CTRL+H. Dont forget that you have it selected, if you want to unselect it later hit CTRL+D to deselect or CTRL+H to view your selection again.

Now hit CTRL+U, or go to Image, Adjustments, Hue and Saturation. (I always use shortcuts)

Now you can move the Hue slider back and forth to change your color.

Ta-da!

If anyone has a suggestion for a photoshop tutorial just leave me a comment and if its something I know how to do I will be glad to post about it!

New Blog-Pictures!

July 22, 2008

I finally started a blog! I just hope I can keep up with it. Thanks Bethany, for motivating me to start one!

I dont have anything to say yet so I’ll just start by posting pictures. Me and stan took some pictures today on self timer. Even though we waited until after 5:00 pm it was still so hot that we could only stand it long enough to take just a few pictures.
