I Need help with image tinting

Recommended Posts

I've been wanting to make my picture tinted green, like it's behind a green plastic sheet, and I don't know how. Could someone tell my how?

Under the menus, go to Adjustments, and then Select Color Balance.

Adjusting the sliders will change the overall color of the picture.

If you're wanting to get an effect like an actual colored sheet of plastic or the like ( with ripples and some light) over it, it will take more than that though.

Maybe combine some effects from this tutorial to get a sheet look over it:

As opposed to a solid picture as shown in the tutorial, maybe create first a semi-translucent colored image first.

Load up your image then click add new layer, fill this with green then double click on this layer in the layer window and change the blending mode if it is too green use the slider.

Is this the effect you're looking for?

If this is what you're trying to get, use the tutorial on the link above that I previously provided using a solid color instead of a flag and follow the tutorial. Once you've completed it, save the file as gif and then change the transparency on the whole picture to suit your needs.

Although I didn't do it with this example, you will get a better effect if you add a drop shadow to it as well.

EDIT:

Here it is with drop shadow added:

BTW, the Mustang pic used in the background is what I use on my desktop.

or you could install the "color tint" plugin and run it setting the slider to green or the color filter plugin.. both found here--- https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/18811-ed-harvey-effects-v-40-2012-02-13/

these will tint the entire selection the color(has no effect on black or white)
