Re: Nightshot Plus mode pictures...

Hi there

Duplicate your background

With your photo open in Photoshop press ..Image>Adjustments>Desaturate

All color will removed from your photo.

At the top of your pallet open a blank layer..In the layer option menu where it says "Normal" click on the drop box and near the bottom choose "Color"

Now with the color picker choose a color you want to add back.... say the yellow eye color... you can have open another picture and use the eye dropper to sample the correct eye color then switch back to your working photo.

Paint in the eye color

Now sample a color for the nose...and do the same.

Keep sampling good color and painting over the gray scale of your working photo.

Use the same layer set to color mode or open new layers if you want to keep the colors separate.

In your photo there are only about 4 or 5 colors in the whole photo

It works great and is easy...give it a try

The above technique is a good way to go when your original has multible color castes and has relatively few colors.

When you remove the original color the castes are just reduced to shades of gray.

Hi. I don't see the desaturate on there. Remember I have Corel Paint Shop Pro X2. So it must be different than what you use. However, thanks for your help. If I have any questions I'll be sure to ask. lol!
BTW, how do you dupliacte a background?? I'm very new to this and need detailed and step by step instructions please. May want to pm or email me.

Re: Nightshot Plus mode pictures...

I think the cast is just reflection from the sheet--and maybe the pinkish pillows are creating the second cast. I desaturated the colors in the cat and then add variation adjustment with a little bit of yellow and a little bit of red. Then I did the eyes more yellow---is it close?

BTW, you said paint it in by hand with the mouse? I suck so bad at that. Another words I'm very bad at art..always have been...is there an easier and non-artistic way to do this. I don't have a steady hand at all when it comes to painting, coloring, drawing, etc. Thanks.
