Am not sure what would be the best tool to do this
Change to Color or Change Color.
- Duplicate the layer
- Effects --> Channel --> Shift Channels Alpha from Luminance
- Effects --> Color Correction --> Levels
- Effects --> Color Correction --> Tint
- Layer blending mode Color, Overlay or Multiply
- Tweak parameters, perhaps add some blur
I was able to follow your initial steps (1,2,3,4 -- but when I got to Layer blending mode I went to:
Layer > Blending Mode > -- None of the drop downs specifically are called Color, Overlay or Multiply
Here's a link to a youtube screen capture....
It's not something you do in the effect controls. It's in the layer's controls in the timeline, located in the Modes panel.
Thanks for walking me through this
I see the modules controls in the timeline. But when I select Color I don't see Overlay or Multiply as a subitem of Color. Instead I see Alpha Add and Luminiscent Premul...
Do I just select Overlay or Multiply directly from the Modes panel ?
Here's my screen capture of where I am now...
You saved my bacon on this one. It worked great after a minute or two of playing with the blend mode and then the levels/tint effects.
