Best way to change shirt color?

Just got this request in. I'm not that good at selecting, so I usually avoid this type of request. Use new selection tool and replace color? thanks.

Ken, depends on the image. Maybe color range. Maybe you could post the image (or part of it) so we can see?

Seems like an easy one for color range for sure, then maybe a hue sat layer on the mask and colorize.

What colour do you need to change it to?

It maybe possible for you to do this without needing to make a selection. See This discussion for several suggestions

You can post images of adequate size as attachments http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/faq...b3_attachments

Nice thread on hue/sat adjustment layer. It may work. The key is to do a black mask and then paint in the shirt color. Only thing: colors are limited in sense are are quite muted and pastel, notice this?

Ken, I tried selecting the shirt with the eyedropper inside the hue saturation adjustment tool and didn't get very good results. Color range worked well I just had to deselect a little bit of skin and hair after it made it's selection. The quick selection tool worked like a champ.

Don't overlook gradient maps. For a solid color change, nothing gives you as much control.

Re: Best way to change shirt color?

thanks crazy. So color range is just a way to get a selection?. It was better than quick selection for the left strap, but I would need 5 minutes to fine tune it -- subtract/ add selections all over. I don't know much about fuzziness or other settings. So rusty if I've ever used any of these at all. Then what would you use to fill new color just fill? The hue/sat was good for making it just more greener, and I'm sure a new pastel could work
