Very nice attempts. Chris's is closest. Still think we'll shoot it instead though. Thanks for the replies and tries. See ya all Tuesday.

Re: Is this possible?

Here's my attempt - I wanted to hold the contrast in the shadow of the original "black" gloves.

I think a reshoot is in order, because while it is possible to turn black gloves into white, I think doing it "right" would take longer than reshooting it.

I tried to use match colors, but its a lot of work & the result...so so.
It is better to get white gloves.

Mark

Looks good. Looks like you put in quite a bit of time and effort with some retouching also.

Since I did not explain the steps I took, I'll do it now.

I duped the background and blurred it using box blur.. THen I inverted it and left it set to normal.

I duped the back ground again, moved it above the blurred layer and hit it hard with a curves layer and lowered theopacity down to 80%. I then made a blank layer under that and merged it down so it was 100% opacity again. THe layer, not the pixels.
Then I did a curves move above everything. A big one that flattened the image.
Then another curve layer above to make sure it had a white look.
About 2 to 3 minutes of effort which is mostly never enough to get good results.

What I did not take the time to do was to add in the definition of the shadows and hard lines which is needed for it to look realistic. Right now mine is a little soft looking.

But there is no need to invert a black image to get to white as it will make weird shadows and highlites and cause a posterization effect as Pixelzombie noted. Although it would probably be less with a higher res image.

Chris
