Photoshop is one of those tools makes a designer/artist’s life really easy.To the point of being lazy. But sometimes lazy is good and when it involves colors, even better! Learn how to change colors of an image in photoshop using the hue/saturation adjustment option in photoshop.
A while ago, I created an opt-in freebie for the blog.If you remember, they were free watercolor blog headers. Now although I do have five different types of headers included in the freebie,the colors may not suit your blog. And of course as much as I would love to create more of them, it would be practically impossible to do so.So in today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how you can change the colors of the headers to suit your blog.
Step 1: Open the file that you’d like to change colors of.
Step 2:Select the layer that you want to change the colors of.Now duplicate this layer and turn off the “eye” icon for the original layer.Select the duplicated layer.
Step 3:After selecting the layer you want to change colors of, hover over to the half moon icon below.You’ll see that it’s called “create new fill or adjustment layer”.Click on the icon and select the “hue/saturation” adjustment layer.
Step 4:Drag the hue arrow to your left or right depending upon the color you would like to have.I dragged mine to the right thus creating this pink hue.Adjusting the saturation will make your images brighter when dragged right and dull when dragged left.
And that’s it. A few simple steps to help you change colors of an image in photoshop. If you’re not well versed with photoshop or don’t have the software, you can use a free online software called “picmonkey”.Angie of Angie Makes shows how to do so using this tutorial.She also explains the same process I explained here.
