I'm running Photoshop 7, and I can't figure out how to change the colors of an outfit. If the model has a blue bikini and I want to make it red, I know there's a tool that will change the color and the gradiants that make up that color in the image.

Any help would be appreciated.

Posting the picture would be a big help. If the bikini is blue and not much else in the picture is blue, you could simply put a loose selection around the bikini and change the blue levels.

Post the pic and I'll give it a shot and I'm sure others would as well.

A quick and dirty was is to select the bikini (either with the magic wand or some other selection tool) then use the image->Adjustments->Hue/Saturation adjustment slider to change the color to whatever you like.

Give that a try.

Of course it would be better to use a copy of the layer or an adjustment layer to allow for undo's, etc.

The "direct" tool for that would be the Selective Color choice, either as an adjustment layer or via Image > Adjust.

Often it's better to use the Color Range selection to create a mask of the stuff to be shifted, and then use either Selective Color or Hue/Saturation/Brightness as an adjustment layer using that mask.

Neither is perfect; both can be used successfully.

There are a lot of shortcut ways that are not perfect but can be good enough. There is only one truly perfect way to do it, though, and it is a real pain in the butt. And that is to make a selection of the garment (or whatever you want to change) VERY carefully, and then use the hue/saturation tool, command or cntrl-U, to change color. The key is in making a top-notch selection. I highly recommending going into the quick-mask mode (on the bottom of your tool palette, check your manual and you'll find it) to use the paintbrush tool to very carefully paint your selection, using the right size brush to precisely get every pixel you want and none you don't. Of course it helps if you're a skilled draftsman, which I am not. But with time and patience it can be done.

This is the ONLY way to make this sort of edit truly seamless and artifact-free. And the good thing about the hue/saturation tool is that it will leave your brightness values intact if you wish, thus preserving the shadows and highlights and such, thus keeping the effect seamless. No one need know anything was changed but you.
