Change color in dress from pink to red

Dec 10, 2011 12:18 PM


I've been trying for days to change the color of this light pink in a dress to red or maybe even green.  I'm trying to fix this for christmas cards.  Nobody can seem to help me get the color to look nice.  I've watched a ton of youtube video with no luck, it always looks neon in color.


Please help! DSC_0069-copy2.jpg

    The best way to do this is you have to cut out the dress.

    Copy the picture and make a new layer for it.

    Hide the background layer.

    Now you have to isolate that dress. Use the magic wand, erasers, what ever you can to cut out that dress. (Sorry I did not do a good job I have a meeting at 3pm)

    Use the colorize feature on the Hue/Sateration option and start changing the color.

    Use blending options, smudge tools, and soft erasers to give it a finished look.

    Another way is to select the dress with the quick selection tool (you can use refine edge to soften the edges of the selection) and then make a color fill layer using overlay, softlight, hue or color blend modes for the color fill layer.

    Each blend mode gives a different tone (look) to the color. Then paint on the layer mask to refine the areas that the quick selection tool may have missed.
