  • How to change white to orange

    Does anyone know the right method to change a white swimsuit or t-shirt to dark orange color?

    A good way to keep all detail in the swimsuit is this. use your colour picker to select the orange you want if you want to be more specific with the colour then grab a hex chart from the web and input at the bottom of color picker the hex code to required shade. once done off the picker. now select a brush slightly soft to colour mode and paint in your swimsuit it will change whilst keeping full detail to the swimsuit.

      Have you tried a gradient map?

        In both RGB and CMYK colors go neutral as they approach white and black, so color mode would have little effect, particularly since it uses the hue and saturation of the applied color but preserves the luminosity of the underlying layer. A white anything will respond with little more than a pale orange in shadow areas and not much at all in highlights. Murray has it; gradient maps are the way to go. That way you preserve the relationship between lights and darks, but you shift the entire profile into the new color range, including luminosity values.

          Another similar approach to gradient maps is to use a curves adjustment layer. Bring blue curve down on right to 0 and green down a tad to get whatever hue of orange you want. Bring blue back up to reduce saturation. A little harder yet maintains some original hue and sat variation Doing from memory on an iphone so hope I remembered this right

            Hi guys, few years ago I found a very good technique to change white cars to color in a very realistic way. Damn I can't remember the sequence.

            Hi Guys,

            I want to paint a blouse collar pure white but when I used the white colour swatch on 100% opacity, I ended up with the collar looking dark grey, please can someone tell me how I can get the blouse colour to be pure white? Do I also have to modify my colour swatch?

            Adding color to white
            by thedarkhalf
            I'm working with a white car and trying to find the best, most realistic way to add color to it. I tried using a solid color and using Color Burn.. but it looks fake. Using Red, I get lots of noise (yellow/orange) in the pure white areas..

            Any suggestions for color overlays? Thanks!
