Re: xr falcon orange PLEASE

It's abit too hard to do as you kinda need a flat finish already if you want to change color via photoshop. There are too many contrasting areas and it'll basically look like a dogs breakfast if you attempted to alter the color. A picture of the car before it was stripped back with the origional paint would be better, and preferably in full sun, not half shade as your picture is.

Re: xr falcon orange PLEASE

I'm a dumbo...but how did you change the colour of the object and not its surrounding? Do I need to use a special select function or something like that?

Thanks in advance...

there are 2 ways that i know of.
the first is by going into the "select" menu....and choosing the "color range" option. from there u can choose the basic color. the program will select that color range but you will still have to select bits and pieces...especially on poor quality photos....or photos where the object is in the shade etc...

the second (also needs to be used with the first) its using the "magic wand tool".



this thing selects whatever u click....but gets the whole area matchig colors. once u have used the color range option....use this tool while holding the shift key to select the rest of the area that is getting the color change.
