I'm used Renne's Hello Fall kit for my images and tutorial. I've also used a Scrapping with Liz template, September in Review. Renee's kit is an absolute must have kit for fall, yet very versatile for other moments throughout the year. My layout is actually for spring - or almost spring, lol! Here it is:
Here is my current layers palette. I have the blue set of leaves open, and will change it's color! I'm secretly a magician... not! lol! :)
Before we actually start changing things, you will want to click on the foreground and background colors. The Color Replacement Tool uses the foreground color. Here, you can see it is an olive green... which happens to match the paper in my layers palette. Imagine that?! All you have to do to change the color is click on the foreground color box, and the Color Picker will pop up!
Also, as I mentioned, you will want to have the Color Replacement Tool chosen from within the Brush Tool. Here it is:
My brush is on the harder side, and at a size of 253. This can be changed to see what works with whatever item you are recoloring.
Color is the most basic choice for Mode - that is what we will use. Strongest color change. Hue can be used as well, but the effect is a little more subtle. Saturation can be used if you want to change the color to gray.
One of the most important parts of the menu bar is the Limits. Contiguous will replaces the color of nearby pixels that have the sampled foreground color. Discontiguous will replace the color of the pixels containing the sampled color, whether or not they’re nearby. Choose Contiguous.
Tolerance is important for the range of spectrum the color will encompass. A higher number means a larger color sample, while a lower number means the range is smaller and closer to the foreground color. I usually use between 25% and 40%, depending on the element, shadows and lighting.
