How to Replace a Color Using the Brush Tool in Photoshop

Posted in Photography, Photoshop

The above pink daisy didn’t start out that way. Here I have a photo of a yellow daisy. Let say, I want to make this daisy pink. There are a lot of ways to do this. For this tutorial I’m going to use the brush tool from the tool box in Photoshop: The first thing I’ll do is go to the Color Swatches palette to pick the color I want. Here I’ll pick a pinkish color: When I click on a color from the Color Swatch palette, the color appears in the “color picker” box in the tool box: Before I start to paint with the brush tool, I’ll need to go to the options bar at the top of the screen to change the mode from Normal to Color: The Color option is at the bottom of the menu: Setting the mode to Color allows me to brush the new color over the flower leaving the texture of the flower intact. Here I’ve taken the paint brush and painted over half of the flower to show how the paint brush works: Here is the finished photo: Try this technique for yourself and have fun!

    i might not have thought this had been interesting one or two years back but yet it is funny the way years shifts the method by which you have an understanding of unusual creative ideas, many thanks with regard to the piece of writing it truly is enjoyable to browse anything sensible now and then instead of the standard rubbish mascarading as information sites on the web

    I really can’t thank you enough for this I was desparately searching for something like this because the regular Image > Adjustments > Color Replacement simply does nothing kind of replacing color it rather adjusts the HSB a bit only. Thanks again & God bless you.
