Welcome to Part-2 of the series.

Change Color using Hue

We will next learn to change color of something using Hue. This is a very useful trick which can be used when we create ecommerce site items. There are times when we have same t-shirt in different colors. This requires us to have the model wear different color t-shirt and give the same pose. But most of the time it can be done easily with photoshop.

I will be using this red t-shirt image for this part.

Now, Open it in photoshop. Then open the Adjustment panel and take mouse over Hue/Saturation to click.


Now, dragging the Hue slider is where the magic begins. You can also increase the Saturation a bit to enhance the color. But sliding the Hue, changes the color.

Below, we create an orange t-shirt.

Consider the below image, where we many 3 different colors items.
