How to change the color of anything in photoshop?

By SYMONE SEVEN


Sometimes we want to change or color match things in Photoshop but don’t know how? That ends right here and now with this quick fix tutorial. Watch me change colors in my photo with a click of a button.


HOW TO CHANGE THE  COLOR ANYTHING


  1. Select HUE/SATURATION from the ADJUSTMENTS window tab

  2. Click on the COLOR PICKER icon (looks like a pointing finger) to select the color you wish to change

  3. When you select the color, your color dropbox with automatically change to the color category that shade falls under

  4. Move the HUE slider to the color you want. Use the lightness/saturation to adjust the shade of the color

  5. To just alter one selected element, use your QUICK SELECTION TOOL to select it

  6. Repeat steps #1-4 to change the color


My advice here is that if your item you want to change is the same color as other objects in the photo, you can erase the effect from them by painting with BLACK on the layer mask. I also recommend painting on your layer mask with WHITE to clean up the selection from the QUICK SELECTION TOOL. You can also use the SELECTIVE COLOR ADJUSTMENT to change the color instead of HUE/SATURATION.
