color replacement

What is the easiest way to change the boys shirt all to the same color as his collar (whit)? If you use an adjustment layer.... please elaborate. I tried the redeye tool, and it just wasn't realistic enough.
thanks,
~Nancy~

right off hand i would think color balance, channel mixer, curves, a mask and desaturate it, the color replacement tool in psp, the 'as target' brush in psp, but the fill brush might be the easiest.

Changing Color

It did seem hard to change the shirt color to the color of the collar. The collar does have some red in it and red tended to bleed out from the edges some. I selected the red and copied that to a separate layer and locked the transparent pixels in that layer. I made a pattern from the collar and filled the shirt layer with that pattern and then blurred that layer some.

I think this is about as close as we are going to get to white without a huge amount of mucking about, given the collar etc. I made two channel masks, one of the red area of the shirt and the other of the lower band of the shirt and then combined them into a single mask. After adjusting the colours down to as approximate as possible, I then returned to the mask of the red areas and reduced it further to blend with the lower shirt and collar. And yes, red does bleed both in photoshop and in the wash

Hi,

Menu: Select > color range. Use the eyedropper to select the red. Use Lasso tool to subtract selected areas in the face.

AL Levels, lighten so you can reach white in next step. See screen shot

AL Hue/Sat. (screen shot)

This is a fast and easy way to do it, so if you like the result it will take only 2 min to do it.

PS: If you miss a bit with the selection, you can paint in the masks of the adjustment layers, just to finish it.

Excellent result, Cassidy. And so far, the only one that complies with Nanls's reuest.

Hi Frode
Not bad for 2 minutes, but the shirt is pink and you didn't whiten the grey part of the shirt.
