Oh boy, a nice warm day for us today! 52 degrees F! Goodness, a whole week of it is coming our way. My cold feels much better today, so it's a beautiful day indeed.
I've been asked about replacing colors in Photoshop, so I thought I would share this info with those of you who do not know how. First choose your photo, and make a duplicate layer. (I always work on a duplicate layer. Then crop, sharpen and make any other adjustments you wish to your photo. I'll use the photo of my red car for the example here.
In Photoshop, go to "Image" > Adjustments > and near the bottom of this menu there is a handy little tool "Replace Color". Click on this. When the new menu box comes up, use the picker to choose the color you want to replace. In my case, I would put the picker somewhere on the red.
On the bottom half of the menu box, use the color sliders to choose your new color. If the picker did not get all of the color you wished to replace, then click on the second picker (with a plus sign on it) and choose the parts of the old color that did not get picked. Do this more than once if necessary. I've decided to make my car a beautiful lime green this time. (Another color I really like.) Click on OK when you have your desired color.
I will try to remember to share some of these wonderful information gems with you from time to time. I know how frustrating it is to find your way around Photoshop. Between assorted classes, "Visual" books, and a lot of help from Su, it's getting a little easier for me.
Today I really must get out to do a couple of errands. I put things off until the last minute, and well, the "last minute" has arrived. I need to shop for a couple of birthday gifts. Janet's birthday is this week, as well as her hubby Scott's (my stepson). I do have a few ideas of what to get, so it shouldn't take me all day.
Last night, I played on the laptop for a while, working on a new project which I shall share with you tomorrow or Friday. Tonight, I hope to work on a couple more photo class assignments. I am way behind, and trying to get caught up.
Now I'm going to have me another cup of coffee and get dressed. The outdoors is calling to me. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
