  • Changing motif into different Pantone colours

    I would like to select the shape of the dove shape pendant, make 5 layers, and change each of the layers so that my pendant is 5 different Panatone colours - light blue 279C, dark blue 2745C... etc. (I would also like to make a silver one but cannot find out how within Photoshop - it looks as if I may have to resort to Alien Skin's Eye Candy, or is there another way?)


    Thanks again for your input which is much appreciated.

    Silver is done with Hue/Sat (Sat -100, Lightness +38) and a plastic wrap filter. Blue with Paint Bucket.

      Sometimes Curves works to simulate silver or gold BUT I don't know how this technique would work for print media

        Thanks for the input but when I try with the bucket tool to replace with blue (Pantone 660 C) I loose all the texture. How did you manage to keep yours in the example?

          Many thanks. Curves are rather effective.

            When you change the color also change the layer mode to (color or softlight or one of the other modes) to retain your texture.

              Yes, I used Color mode, with the pendant on its own layer. You could otherwise also set the Paint Bucket to Color mode.

                Saturation masking p.114
                by dpnew
                I don't understand the distinction there. In addition, I'm not even sure what the phrase "because you are isolating colors that may have information in red, green, and blue components all at the same time" refers to: saturation masking or RGB separations? I'm guessing that it refers to saturation...

                Hi All,

                I need a few suggestions on how to overcome this problem.

                I'm shooting a couple of rooms in a building using the ambient light and the daylight that comes through the windows. Now, in the days of film I would have gelled the different lights depending on their color...
