I'm creating an ecommerce website for entrance doors and I need to create loads of different colors from a handful of door images, because the base image is different for each style of door, how do I get exactly the same color for each style?
Please post images (at least a couple of sample images).
In ths case I would recommend neutralizing the door-elements in all images so that identical (Adjustment) Layers can have the (edit: more or less) same effect.
A crude test:
Fantastic!! excatly what I was after. I should have explained that I am very new to photoshop....How would I start what you have recommended above?
• a Layer Mask of the area that is intended to vary in color.
Then you can use
• Adjustment Layers to remove the Color (Hue/Saturation or Black & White for example) and
• make them similar in brightness and ideally also in detail (Curves or Levels for example).
After that you can use
• Solid Color Layers or Adjustment Layers to colorize the door.
It If the colors are all fairly similar in brightness it should not be that bad; but if you need to create very light and very dark color-variations those may need additional finagling to save at least some of the details and wood-structure.
Thank you very much!!! you have been a great help!
I expect you might hit some issues, especially with very bright or dark colors; feel free to post here or, even better, start new threads if further questions arise.
A new thread might attract the attention of other regulars who might have other approaches, maybe better ones.
Thank you for your help in the previous posts, I have a new question which is how do I move all the glass units to the left or right keeping everything else the same (Colour, shade etc), I have to do this with a large number of door styles as there are lots of glass options. Any help you can provide would be a great help.
First put the four glass elements on their own layer. Select them with your preferred selection tool, copy and paste. A paste operation will automatically paste to a new layer.
Then you need to fill the holes in the original layer. Keep the selection, and try Edit > Content Aware Fill. Touch up with clone stamp or healing brush if needed.
Now you can move them wherever you want with the move tool. Hold shift as you move to lock horizontal/vertical movement.
To illustrate @D Fosse ’s post:
Content Aware Fill might still benefit from some manual touch-up.
And an aside: The beveled frames of the windows might benefit from a little additional »depth«.
One could either try to salvage it from the original or, more »brutish«, apply a Layer Style.
