Change Colour for Refine Brush Overlay

Recommended Posts

I found this lovely Ariel Little Mermaid doll washed up on the shore today. Got some great shots and decided that I'd like to make a picture of everything in black and white except her long, beautiful, red hair. Her hair is strewn all over the place so it's difficult to get a clean selection with the Selection Brush. I'd like to refine the selection tool to select hair only but low and behold the default overlay colour that selects the rest of the photo happens to be the same colour of red as her hair. This is problematic as I can't see what's being selected and what's being left as background. Is there a way of changing this default red colour?

 

Thanks very much

Ha Ha. I'm glad it's not just me. The last two images I worked on were red.

 

You can change the overlay colour to Black, White, Transparent etc.

Thanks toltec. Instead of changing the overlay colour I instead temporarily changed the hair colour and that seemed to help but I do have more questions about it which I'm going to post in another topic.
