Sansorio Posted February 26, 2008 Share Posted February 26, 2008 Hi guys and gals, I've been using PdN for a short while and have stubled upon a problem I can't figure out, and can't find any answer to using search. So here goes: To save you from reading it all, in short what I'm asking is this: 1. How can I (easily?) change the colour of parts of an existing texture while keeping the shadows/creases/outlines? 2. Is it somehow possible to make a selection and then fill that selection with a texture/pictures instead of just a colour? The long story: I want to change the colour/texture on an existing texture sheet, while keeping the shades and creases in the original. This sheet (it's actually background for a UV-map) contains textures for several models (the textures are costumes for use in a game). I only want to change the colour of one particular costume in this sheet. To add to the problem, I only want to change some parts of that costume-texture, as there are pieces of leather in it, which I'd like to keep in original colour. Instead of just editing the colour, is it possible somehow to make a selection and then inserting a new texture/picture into that selection? Or put another way; is it possible what I have made a selection from the background, added a new layer, to save that selection as an outline over an existing picture? You can clearly see I'm confused here... :oops: So here's how far I've got: *I've fiddled around with the magic wand trying to select only the parts I want, but it seems getting it perfect this way would take me months and still not give a good result. *Selecting the whole texture for the costume with the magic wand and then go change the RBG values kindof works, but again, I face the problem with the bits I dont want to change. There are way too many nuances in the colouring to use magic wand to deselect; is lassoing the only way? *I've got a tip to desaturate the original texture, selecting and add to another layer and then fill the selection with a new colour, but I haven't got to try it yet (I'm at work); will this work? Thank you for reading! Really hoping some kind soul around here is willing to help :wink: Thanks, Sansorio edit: typos Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
