Hue and saturation change to same colour (eyedropper?)

Hi All,

I have several base images that I would like certain parts to be the same colour across all of them. We usually adjust the Hue and Saturation with a layer mask and go by eye, but we'd like to be more consistent. We can't use the same setting on the standard hue/saturation/lightness as the base image colours are all slightly different. Is there a way to use the eyedropper tool to select the right colour from say a different file which will then make the masked part that same and consistent colour?

You can use a masked adjustment layer set to Hue blend mode - but I'm actually not sure it will be more consistent or look better. The problem is light falloff, so it depends on the lighting and shape/volume of the objects in the image.

 

I'd normally do that by eye as first option - and probably with Selective Color which is less disruptive to the pixel structure than Hue/Sat. But it depends. Can you show a screenshot, or a crop from the image, just so we know what we're discussing?

Attached screenshot. It's all the red dots (the light strings/fairy lights). We would like them all the same gold-y colour, which so far we've done by eye. The second image is without the Hue/Sat layer masks off to show original colours.

Well, maybe someone can come up with a clever solution - but I'd do that by eye. Much quicker and more accurate than trying to match numbers IMO.

Please post a couple of sample images. 

 

A Hue Saturation Layer may simply not suffice, an additional (lower) Curves Layer could help level out the luminance variations.
