Re: Colorize project

Thanks Helen. I tried it again and I still just don't come up with all those masks and layers the way its supposed to. I have always had a hard time with masks and layers, gets too much junk on my program to keep it all organized.
The first part I follow, then it all goes bluey. I'll keep trying tho..
layers n such do seem important to everyone here.

Hi learninlady,

please excuse my late reply, I started a detailed explaination of the worth1000 tut for you and I cannot find it, you are correct your photo should go all bluey anyway I give you a little explaination to start with.

1. Copy backround layer press Ctrl J on your keyboard

2. At the bottom of your layer pallette you find a little square with a circle in the middle click on it, you'll find a white quare next to your copied background photo gthat is your layer mask

3. Next make sure you click on the main copy photo next to the white quare

4. Then click on Image, Adjustments, Hue/saturation

5. The Hue/Saturation window will open, on your right hand you'll see colorize and preview underneath click in the little square next to colorize you'll find your photo goes in one colour

6. Hue 225, Saturation 25, Lightness is optional

7. click OK

8. Now your photo should be all blue, double click where is says layer and name it Blue

9. Next change normal mode to colour

10. Next Ctrl J

11 that would give you another copy layer

12 Image, Adjusments, Hue/Saturation

13 Checked colorize you should see a little green tick just like before

14. Hue 0 Saturation 50, Lightness optional your photo shop now be all red rename red by double clicking on layer 2

15. Ctrl J

16. Image, Adjustments, Hue/Saturation

15. check colorize

16. Hue 50, Saturation 50, Lightness optional, your image should be all gold or yellow

17. Next click on the the eye of the yellow copy that would turn it off

18. Click on the Red layer and make sure you click on the white square

19. Edit, Fill, the edit window open click where it says use and look for 50% Grey click on it, Mode Normal Opacity 100

20. Your photo should now be purple


Try and see how you get on an please do not hesitate to come back if you get stuck, then I shall guide you through the next level of the tutorial.


hope this helps

Re: Colorize project

I am sorry for being difficult and I hate to clog the thread with my ignorance, but what I meant was 'kabluey'. kaput.
I can get as far as changing the photo to the blue then it begins as you did with clicking little square n such that arent there on my program.
Let me copy your instructions down and give it another go. This time when I reach 'that' point I will make a screenshot of it.

Re: Colorize project

Don't feel bad Kate. I'm using PSPX and I can't follow that tutorial either. She even gives instructions for PSP users but I've tried at least 10 times over the past year and get lost. I use layers for every photo I work on and can use masks for things like replacing backgrounds and such but I can't do this tutorial. I would love to finally understand because the coloring I've seen done this way is very realistic.

Re: Colorize project

Ah thanks Nan, your words mean a lot to me. My biggest is I stay away from masks/layers/ I get way too confused! I try and try, and I will keep on trying as Im too stubborn to give up! but ah, when Im asked to do this and there isnt anything I can find to do 'this' its frustrating, thats why I like the video as they show you exactly where to find things.
Have you tried this?
Illustrations
theres a couple little downloads but they are useful and free!

-------------------------------
This is as far as I got this time. Helen said ctrl J, did nothing.
So I 'layers' 'duplicate' instead
I can get as far as the turning blue part but not with the last instructions as the ctrl way doesnt work for me.

Sorry Learninlady I've given you instructions for Photoshop CS4, I only ever use photoshop for all my work, I am afraid I haven't got a clue with PSP, but I can see Chillin has given you a link to follow instruction using PSP thanks Chillin for the link I shall browse around there and see what else I can find. The tutorial is written I believe from a well known person an expert on colourization of black and white photo.

I hope you get the helps of how to use layer masks, my personal opinion I still believe the worth1000 is the best tut to follow by far for colourizing.

I've had a really quick go at pixeladdict's photo but using the worth1000 tutorial instead just for comparison, sorry when i see a black and white photo i have to colourize it's just my madness lol, i still say thumbs up to the worth1000 tutorial.
