Thanks Leah!

I thought you did pretty darn good too (smile). I also liked your suggestion of changing the color of the girl's shirt to help her stand out from the boys.

Roger, I liked your approach of using Curves to adjust the colors. Think I will have to give that method a try!


Christine,
Good idea of painting a new shirt layer. That's one way to replace those stripes. The tough part will be recreating the shirt's texture.

What are you talking about T - Yours is beautiful!

I will have to remember that replace color exists - I am just not used to it.

Thanks Roger! Really my first time playing with the replace color command. Still took some tweaking with the patch tool and clone brush to completely hide evidence of the stripes.

Doug's got a tutorial you might want to check out: Replace Color Command

Tried this again using the smudge tool to smudge the lighter green over the darker green in the direction of the folds to maintain the shading, then created a new small image filled with dark red colour. Selected the shirt and collar and used match colour to change the colour. Added noise to give back texture lost with the smudging

T.Paul - Your method is excellent good for getting an in-between shade of green but as it also generates a solid layer to which you painted back the shadows is not really much different to my first go with painting the solid colour and adding back the shadows.

Hi, Very nice Christine. I really like adding color to her collar. I would not have thought of that.

I am trying to duplicate Roger and Leah's technique with curves without a lot of success. Leah's shirt looks great. And I'm so glad Leah played around with lace so I won't try that.

I played around with TPaul's method and was just ready to quit when things worked out. Not sure I understand what is going on .Neat technique. Are you going to turn this into a TUT. You described it so well.

Did anyone else think the size was not right. I was surprised at Karen's comment about size.

Gary, I've never liked the stripes and thought it would be easy to get rid of them. Here I am ,days later ,still struggling to duplicate what others have shown here

I will be trying all again later today.

Thanks for helping and showing me that good results can be obtained. I will probably be back later with questions.

Hope the USA women's softball team wins a gold medal today.
Ya'll deserve a gold medal for all the help you give!!!!

JR
