Change color of this Jacket?

Being that this is my girlfriend I will give it a shot and try to make her happy by fulfillling her request of trying to turn this jacket into white. Her reasoning is that she already has the shot that she likes with this jacket color. I don't think that she would ask this of another photographer but she has no problem asking me. I was like, seriously?!?! Why don't I just put a bikini on you and set you on the beach. LOL. So here I ask, how would I make this coat white? The leopard marks can stay.

Thanks fellas:

Re: Change color of this Jacket?

This is just a fast, quick and dirty example; I didn't even do a decent mask.

Selective color: yellow -100 black; neutral -100 black. see attached.
Hope this helps!

Re: Change color of this Jacket?

Guess I am late to the party...

A quickie using an older version of Photoshop... there are many other ways I am sure..

Dupe layer
Hue/Saturation (lighten and get rid of yellow)
Color Deconvolution (Brighten the Gray)
Curves (brighten the white and darken the spots)
Replace color (darken the spots)
Add and paint the layer mask

(I like Nanls Selective Color way also.. )

Like I said it was a quickie... I just used a soft white and black brush on the mask to sort of blend the edges, alternating till it looked a bit better...

A proper mask would help a lot
