Ted’s Photoshop Tips: CHANGE COLOURS IN PHOTOSHOP

CHANGE COLOURS IN PHOTOSHOP 

Photoshop is the most powerful image editing software. It can be daunting for some photographers at first glance.

1 MINUTE PHOTOSHOP TIP

But it is not that difficult to learn Photoshop. Here is an example of an easy way to change the background colour while maintaining its texture.    

 

1- Open an image in Photoshop, click on the “SUBJECT SELECTION” tool. Then click on the “SELECT OBJECT” button.

2- Photoshop automatically selects the subject. Then go to the “LAYER” panel and click on the “NEW FILL OR ADJUSTMENT LAYER.” 

3- Select a colour to cover the selected area. At this point, your subject is covered in paint.  

4- Then, click on the Mask Layer and then in the Property Panel, click the INVERT button. 

5- Next, go to LAYER BLEND, and select COLOR from the dropdown menu. It changes the background colour while maintaining the pattern and texture.

Changing Colours in Photoshop

That is all there is to it. Now you can change the background of images to colours of your choice! Give it a try and let me know.
It is just the tip of the iceberg! There are many more hidden features in Photoshop.
