From the Piggy PS: Select Color Range

PS: Select Color Range
..Ever buy a CU product and wish it was another color? Did you try moving the Hue/Saturation sliders? Did you try moving the Color Balance sliders? And still its just not the new color? At least not evenly. Ive got another trick you can try.






.

Im going to start with a CU bloom. Perfectly lovely bloom. But too pink for my tastes. Id love a gorgeous blue.



So I try: ImageAdjustmentHue/Saturation and move my sliders back-n-forth. I get lots of pretty colors, but not the nice, solid, even blue I want:



After trying: ImageAdjustmentColor/Balance and even: ImageAdjustmentVariations. I get frustrated. Time to try something new!

I like the yellow center. Im a big fan of yellow of blue together. All I want to replace is the too bright, too pink, pink. I go to:
SelectColor Range


Use the eye dropper to select the color you want to replace. You can change the amount of color variation selected by sliding the Fuzziness slider from 0-to-200. Once you have everything desired selected click OK.

Create a New Layer above your CU item (in my case, my flower). Fill the selected area with the new color (I picked a soft periwinkle blue) using your Paint Bucket Tool. Change the Layer Blend Mode to Color:

.

Note: You may need to SelectColor Range more than once to get all the bits & pieces selected. I create a New Layer (and set the Color Blend Mode to Color) for each newly selected Color Range.

I also use the Clipping Mask feature in the Layer Palette to prevent any stray pixels or colors from appearing:
