help changing color of tshirt!

hey,

I am having difficulties to change the colour of a yellow tshirt to a black tshirt.

I have done pretty much all my tricks and its near impossible.... anyone care to share a light, or rather a shadow (wink wink) on this subject?


thanks

Re: help changing color of tshirt!

try selecting just the tee shirt copy to a new layer and desaturate and paint in with black.

Try Multiply. If you don't like the results, experiment with all of them, until you see what they do for you.

Try inverting the colour and then de-saturating.

Re: help changing color of tshirt!

I'm wondering how to do a professional color change, a technique that will work with almost every color. The harder ones are to shift brighther colors to darker and viceversa, any tip?

try using color range play with it until you get a good selection of only the shirt. and then while selection is still active paint with you choice of color. then set blending mode to color. you might need to do alittle clean up on some areas. Worked pretty good for me.

Yes, I do that as well. Thank you anyway. Did you tried with Channel Mixer? Is faster and works much better, but it's a bit hard to achieve the tone you're looking for.

seriously,

the tip given by Xaran is a great approach! All I need is some attention to the shadow areas because they turn white and inverting. now i am working on fixing those!

BTW, I would not mind to hear anohter pro tip to get rid of this "negative" looking shadows!

cheers
