I currently have an area I added with a splatter brush that's white, and I want to add a bit of an orange tint to it. The blend layers aren't really doing the job, and obviously, adding a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer has no effect to the white. I have tried selecting the area with the Lasso tool and adding a Solid Colour, but that just fills in the entire selection. Similarly, I can't select the content of the layer to make a mask from it as it says there aren't enough pixels.
Apart from adding the splatter with a different coloured brush, is there any quick trick that will allow me to change the white?
Is the brush application on a Layer of its own?
Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
Edit: »Similarly, I can't select the content of the layer to make a mask from it as it says there aren't enough pixels.«
What exactly is the warning and what is its relevance?
Yeah, the brush strokes were done on a separate layer. Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact brush I used as I have a LOT of them. ^^;
And the warning comes up if I hold Ctrl and try to click on the layer to make a selection of it for a mask.
That warning is not really relevant, it just means that the Selection would not produce »marching ants«, it could still be used as a Layer Mask for example.
If an object is on a Layer of its own it is more efficient to Clipping Mask Adjustment Layers to that Layer instead of giving the Adjustment Layers Masks to affect those objects.
Yeah, like I mentioned in my first post, I tried that. But because the colour was white, a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer had no effect, even clipping it to the layer.
If the splatter is a Layer of its own the Layer Style »Color Overlay« might suffice.
If the splatter has been merged with the background I would recommend determining the channel with the best separation, then using Blend if-settings and a Color Overlay Layer Style on a Group. (And a Layer Mask.)
Perfect. The Layer Style/Colour Overlay works perfectly. Thank you. 😄
