Hello,

 

Does anybody know how I can create a product image like this tshirt below?

This image can I use on webpages and give them different colors if I change the background from the webpage.

I tried multiply blend mode but this does not work.

Your question is not clear to me. What is exactly your request regarding Adobe Photoshop? Can you give us more details? Do you want to remove background or something else?

 

I just downloaded your example image.

 

You may be able to do trick using transparency.

 

Before using Transparency separate shirt from background, unlock background layer or promote it to normal then select shirt and press  Ctrl + Shift + J. Lower transparency of layer with shirt to 25% for example, experiment. Create at the very bottom layer filled with color and experiment. remove bottom most layer when you finish experimenting.

 

Save as PNG.

I'm going to guess that you want to use the same image of the t-shirt and show it in different colours. 

 

Colorizing does not work on objects that full white or full black.  In fact it has the most effect on 50% grey.  So we need to use something like a curves adjustment layer to achieve that.  Note that as well as bringing down the white tones, I have also applied a dip in the middle of the curve to darken the shading.  I have also clipped the curvesa layer to the t0shirt layer.

Now we can add a layer, fill it with colour and set its blend mode to colour.  It was too intense so I reduced its opacity to 60%

 

To increase the shading effect we can use a copy of the t-shirt set to Multiply.  Not I have pulled down the curves layer a bit more for best effect.

Let us know if we are off the track, giving as much inforation as you can.

I'll add this recent video from the Photoshop Training Channel on transfering shading to composited elements.  

Jesus Ramirez nearly always has information that is new to me, and that information is often hugely effective and changes the way I use Photoshop.  In this case I discovered that desaturating using a Vibrance adjustment layer has an important difference to using Hue Saturation.  To make that clear, I am referring to using the Saturation slider and not the Vibrance slider in the Vibrance adjustment layer.  You can see a marked difference in the results.  Desaturating with the Vibrance layer on the right has produced significantly greater contrast making it much better for transfering its shading.image.png

you are close, but if you downloaded. the image Ellen shared, you will see that the negative space is white,  and the foreground is transparent with exceptions of the shading. So you can create a  new solid layer with any color, and as  long as it is behind the layer, the shirt will look great since it has all shading in the top transparent layer.

its a new technique  I have been seeing for fashion companies since it makes it easy to post a shirt in literally ANY color using the exact same file! no more having to use sliders to change and try to match the colors. I'm not sure how its done... but Im following this post!

 

Hope that makes more sense.

Mark, I've been unable to save images from this forum for a wee while now.  If I click to expand an image I get a black screen, and no option to copy or save.  The same thing is happening with Edge and Chrome for me.  Are you not having this issue?

but if they are able to create what they are looking to create, they dont need to use Hue/Saturation, all they will need to do is add a solid colored layer under the shirt and BOOM, it will be the color of the layer. Much easier then trying to adjust Hue/Saturation

It was related to 'Colorizing does not work on objects that full white or full black.'.

I believe this is the key sentence by OP to adress:

 

"This image can I use on webpages and give them different colors if I change the background from the webpage."

 

What OP really want in my opinion is to put image with transparency inside container and to allow users, for example, to change background color for container what will result in different color for Tshirt. Maybe OP simply wants to set bgr color of container and to have that color for Tshirt but that should be end goal not to change color in Photoshop.

 

If you are confused by blending modes that is probably related to blending modes using CSS I believe (mix-blend-mode - CSS: Cascading Style Sheets | MDN (mozilla.org) not blendings in Photoshop.

Yes this is what she is looking for. Really not sure why everyone is having trouble understanding. She  is looking to create another image like the one above, that is transparent and the colors can be changed whether on a website with a background color change or in a photoshop file so she can add new colors.

 

So how did you do it Jeff? I tried using blend if but it seemed to get rid o f the white and shadows.

mark

Try splitting right handle on This Layer using Alt + click and drag as on screenshot below. You must isolate shirt on separate layer to use Blend If as suggested below.

The 7th step is equivalent of adding a layer below selected, then merging the above to the new one. I'm saying that as both methods take 3 clicks - one in File menu, second in Layers panel.
