how to recolor a simple picture

Recommended Posts

I think he means "Hue", not Hie. :-P


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

You could try this:

If your original is not already in render form, you can remove

the background by - Magic Wand > Delete > Feather Object plugin.

Turn it to gray scale by - Adjustments > Black and White.

Use Adjustments > Brightness / Contrast at 100 and 0 settings.


Now position a new layer above the adjusted hoody layer.

Use the Paint Bucket tool to fill it with the yellow that you want to use.

With the adjusted hoody layer active, Magic Wand the background area.

Now, with the yellow layer active, press Delete.

Set the yellow layer's Blend Mode to Multiply and merge it

down onto the adjusted hoody layer.

If you want the shading to look a bit different, use different settings

with the Brightness / Contrast adjustment, at that step.
