What is Color Change:

Changing color in Photoshop is a common task that is needed to learn to change the existing color of an object, area, texture, environment and so on.

Why It is needed:

Photoshop is used to work with RGB color mode which is used in visual media (e.g. television, computer, digital screen etc.). Color correction is needed in Photoshop to change the view of an image and make it suitable for the visual media.

Use of Color Correction:

Personal Use: Digital artists, photo editors, Creative workers, designing people and those who work with the visual media use color correction in Photoshop to create the best output of their work.

Commercial Use: It is mostly used to change the color of a product, environment or style in different e-commerce sites, garments’ websites, model agencies, advertising media, printing sectors, broadcasting media and many more.

Important Things to Know While Correcting Colors:

The following  things are really important while working with color correction.

  2. Know the use of Hue, Saturation and Lightness.
  3. Sound knowledge on Brightness and Contrast.

3 Ways to Change Color in Photoshop:

  1. Using Hue/Saturation/Lightness:

Hue means which color, Saturation means how much color and Lightness means how much light or dark the color is. We can change the existing color to any other color by using Hue/Saturation/Lightness.

Firstly, use the sample color to detect the color range of a particular color.

Then pick the color and see the range of Hue and Saturation of the color.

After that, apply the Hue and Saturation accordingly to the targeted image and Fix the Lightness of the color.

To find the Hue, Saturation and Lightness Tab, go to the Image menu and then select Hue/Saturation/Lightness.

Tips: Use Ctrl+U (Windows) or Cmd+U (Mac) to get the Hue, Saturation and Lightness Tab.

  1. Using Color Balance:

Select the object whose color needs to be changed.

Then, go to the Image menu and select Replace Color from the drop-down menu.

After that, change the hue to the targeted color range and adjust the saturation to it. Change the saturation if it is needed. Keep the fuzziness as per your selection needs. Use the eyedropper tool to select the area of the object.
