A Quick and Easy Guide to Changing the Color of an Object in Photoshop

Home Photoshop

Being able to change the color of elements in your image gives you great freedom in the overall look of your scene. Here’s a quick guide on how you can do that, by Adobe themselves.

Creating a set for photo shoots can be difficult, time consuming, and costly, and that’s if you even get the opportunity to do that in the first place. Many shoots do not allow such control and while it may not break the image by any means, adjustments to color can certainly make it.

I edit the colors of objects in my images reasonably often when I’m shooting editorial images. While it’s rare that any object will be such an odd color that it will ruin the scene or distract too heavily, I like all elements in my images to synergize with the scene and, if possible, be complementary colors. So, in most instances, I will select an object that stands out, mask it, then alter the color to be analogous or complementary of my subject. It may not seem like much, but it can add a layer of professionalism to your final image that could well push your work to the next level.

In this video, Adobe show you in just five minutes how to quickly and accurately alter the color of objects in your image. This technique can easily be used on clothes or just about anything you can make a selection of, too. How do you alter the color of elements of your images?
