REPLACE THE COLOUR
Edit the backgrounds or sections of your scene with Photoshop
OPEN YOUR IMAGE It’s best to choose an image that has a clearly defined outline between two different colours. Once you’ve chosen, open it in Adobe Photoshop.
FIND THE TOOL Select the Color Replacement tool from the toolbar. If it isn’t visible at first, you can access it by holding down the Brush tool.
SET THE BRUSH In the options bar, set the blend mode to Color. Then change the brush style, tweaking the size and hardness to suit your subject.
SAMPLE MODES Set the sampling mode to once. This means the software will replace the targeted colour in areas containing only the hue we first clicked.
SET THE TOLERANCE A low percentage will replace colours very similar to the pixels you click, whereas a higher value replaces a broader range of colours.
PAINT IT IN Choose a foreground colour to replace the original one. Then click the target colour you wish to replace in the image and drag the brush around to replace it.
AFTER NEW COLOUR the color Replacement tool is ideal for quickly changing large, bold areas of colour such as backgrounds. it doesn’t work as well with dark and subtle tones
BEFORE ORIGINAL COLOUR the color Replacement tool is also available in Photoshop elements software. We chose to replace the blue background with purple
