Photoshop help

Postby Homer » Fri Oct 27, 2017 1:41 am

Can anyone help me with a query?

I have a black & white picture of a bunch of balloons where one balloon is coloured red. I need to change that red balloon to a specific shade of blue (R83, G164, B211 / #53a4d3).

I've selected the red area and created a new adjustment layer and can change the colour by sliding the hue toggle, so I know I'm on the right track, but how do you change it to a specific colour?

It's photoshop cc.

Whats wrong with red, other then you don't like it? But good luck anyway.
The hardest part of doing nothing is knowing when your done.

Don’t have my photoshop open in front of me, but you can input specific rgb numbers in the color picker tool. Just fill as an overlay lawyer with that specific color and adjust opacity where needed. Save your selection and use it to desaturate the red ballon on the original so it won’t impact your blue tone. Easy.

It was a photo, so just inputting a RGB would lose the shadows and highlights. It clicked and I worked out why it couldn't be done the way I wanted.

And when did this site become so quite? It's been a while since I've been here, and it's even quieter than when I left.

That’s why I said fill it on an overlay layer and desaturate the red so you can maintain the shadows and highlights....
