Hi guys,

Is anyone able to change this white sofa to a medium brown for me and tell me how it's done??? I've given up! White seems to be a non starter for me when it comes to colourizing and hue adjustments. Help!!



Rgds,
Marki

I could try but I like it in white... ok...

Go to the local grocery store or to the local walgreen's or Wal-Mart.. get some Rit Dye in the shade of Brown you want.

Make sure you unzip all cushions and remove the padding, and be very careful pulling the staples and upholstery clips out of the wood frame.

Go to your local coin op laundry, and set the machine on cool setting. Add Rit dye as to instructions on box.. and then after cycle.. run in cool water one more cycle before putting in dryer on medium heat.

Then they should be ready to place back on the couch frame.

OH.. you wanted help in Photoshop....??? I'm sorry, I have that same problem.. but I just couldnt resist the little bit of humor..

Since the background is white as well, you might be better to cut the girl to a separate layer, drop use your magic wand to highlight different parts of the sofa, and fill each section in separately. I don't think you can just replace a color as the background is going to be a problem. Keep in mind the marquis tool will allow you to adjust / replace color in selected areas only.

OK,

here is how I did the changes. Create a new empty layer and set it to color. Pick the color you want and start painting over the couch. Since it is in color mode the color will be a lighter color or a different color all together so you may have to experiment to see what each color looks like. Since you have the painted color on a seperate layer, you can pick a new color and use the paint bucket to change the color.

First , it would be best to work from the original
SO what I would do is , ( assuming you use photoshop )

make a copy , as most will say NEVER change the original
then start using the magic wand on the couch, set the tolerance to say 20 and see what it grabs, if good hold the shift key and ADD more of the couch

IF it goes outside the couch , let go of the shift button and UNDO the last grab , then LOWER the tolerance to say 5 , keep trying til done

then feather or enlarge by a pixel or two
change the color / hue /saturation to your liking

when you deselect the couch you will probably still have to clone heal the edges

estimate about 30 minutes
IF you want, email me so I can send you what I did to the one you posted

Sounds SO much easier than what I tried to explain

So I tried to do it your way and I found the layer/ color / paint couch with brush -- worked great

then I tried to change the color like you said with the paint bucket and it ran into the pants and some of the floor , being that I was changing the whole layer I should not have needed to select anything
What did I diffenent from you

Thanks for the lesson
I try the magic wand or the quick mask , but sometimes I lose the " texture " of the things

The painted layer is seperate from the main photo. So if you click on the already painted color with a different color it will change the color. If you had already flattened the layer then tried to change the color, you will run into bleading.
