Hi,

 

Can I change a specific color in a photo by clicking on it and then clicking on a replacement color from the color panel.  Example, my grand daughter has a blue dress on and I want to change it to red without affecting anby other part of the photo.

 

I played around with the HSL Adjustment by selecting Blue and using the sliders however it changed other parts of the photo.

 

Looking to Click on a color in a photo such as dress and then change just that color using the color panel.

Is this possible??

 

Thanks,

Rudy

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, Rudy. :)

 

First of all, look at the Layers panel and make sure that you're working on a pixel layer; if it says '(Image)' instead of '(Pixel)', you'll need to right-click the layer and choose the 'Rasterize' option. If you then select your granddaughter's blue dress with the Selection Brush Tool in the Pixel Persona, any adjustments you make will only be applied to the selected region.

Thank you so much. Since I posted this, I found another way to do it. I used a selection brush and outlined the dress. I then brought up an HSL adjustment and used it on the selected dress. Did not affect any portion of the photo.

 

I've been a user of Photoshop since version 1 (big buck purchase) and upgrading every year to a tune of 200.00.  Played around with Photo plus over the years but always used PhHotoshop.

 

That ended. Just canceled my subscription of Photoshop and purchased Affinity Photo. What a great product for the one time price.

 

Have to learn the new UI and Affinity terms but using the tutorials helped me a great deal.

 

Love this product.

 

Tempted to write a detailed review on their Facebook Page. What do you think?

That sounds like a better option than what I was taught; to use the "Recolor" adjustment layer. The HSL gives you a full scale, and it still technically does the job of recoloring.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!
