COLORIzzzING

Hi All!

I got a job to make the cover of a series i could scan each cover one by one but i'm interested in is there a method to change the color by an adjustment layer because the backlightning is the same each cover just the main color changing as U can see.

Hi saby,

if this is what you had in mind, I achieved it using only a Selective Colors Adjustment Layer .... (I tweaked Reds, Yellows and Neutrals...)

Me again ....

Got it now!!

For what you have in mind, your method is better than mine .... Just a small suggestion... If you "need exacly the same yellow backlighting" I would put the yellow light/colour as top Layer .... (see my Layers' order in the attachment) ...

What I did is:

1) Desaturated the picture using Channel Mixer.

2) Created a new empty Layer on top (and left it there...), and created an oval vignette(feather 60 pixels) for the yellow backlighting, filled the selection with yellow sampled from your 'layers' attachment and set the blending to Color.

3) created a Hue&Saturation adjustment Layer (colorize box checked) between Desaturated Layer and Vignette Layer.... tweak Hue and Saturation and copy merged (here is the link to the MergeVisible Action I wrote and posted in our *new* Resouces Section

This way, the yellow backlighting won't be effected by any of the changes/colorizing you'll make below ....

Tone and contrast will also remain the same as you'll always be using the same desaturated starting point.
