Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

FWIW, Here's Vivid Light over a curve. It could probably use some HSL to reduce saturation, as Shaun had suggested in the first place in other thread. But it's all speculation without seeing what the material is supposed to look like.

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

The first step is to change the white color to any, but not white. Next-channel mixer to bring closer to the desired one, next- HSL adjustments couple of times to replace the light parts & the last- fine tune with a curve layer.

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

IMO, the hard part isn't knowing how to make the change, it's what these panties should really look like in such a dark shade, ie, depth, saturation, shininess, etc.

My sense is they should be pretty rich, but really, who knows...

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

yes Flashtones my rendering is missing vividness or possess 2D appearance. And your last try comes much closer to natural look. Bad thing is that no sample was provided of how it meant to look or clear guidance on project leave us only guessing how it should look. In this scenario I go for natural looks.

Re: Advice on changing lingerie colour

Nebula operator, forget what I said about controlling the highlights with a blend - I was wrong with the mode anyway. The attached is done entirely in Lab, I just adjusted the L channel only from the previous one. I reckon it's pretty much bang on the money. (I put a swatch in the image and it blends in nicely )

Difficult to say. You have to realise that I was at a relatively early stage using PS, so It was all amazing to me. Probably the most profound aspect was the colour theory: how to assess colour casts and the best approach to correcting them. It was a revelation that you could work in different colour modes with the same image! Until then if a job was going to print all work was carried out in CMYK, for web, RGB. The only problem I found is that I now see colour casts everywhere and have developed a kind of OCD where I have to copy pics from the web just to see what they really look like.

IMO, Lab can help with any aspect of photography, so, yes, it's got it's place in beauty re-touching. As always, though, it depends on the photo and what you're trying to achieve.

I use Lab quite a lot and Margulis' techniques all the time. They profoundly changed the way I work.

[QUOTE=nebulaoperator;292246]Thank you for swatch. Looks really good!!! I am re-installing my CS5 atm after that I will try to do it my self.

I was in the supermarket (looking at packaging, nerdy, moi?) when I realised it wasn't necessary.

Alternative explanation: sometimes I'm an idiot.
