I only know the very basics of Photoshop but am slowly teaching myself the more complicated aspects of it. I am currently working on a job that involves changing the colour of a table lamp to another colour/finish. I have searched youtube and google and tried various diferent things but I am unable to do what seems like such a simple task! Please help! I have attached the two photos. I need to change the cream one, to the same colour/finish of the green one. I also need to keep all the reflections/shadows etc. I've tried messing with the Hue/Saturation but I can't seem to get it the same colour and then include the finish as well (the speckly bits). Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me with this!
When the Lab Curve correction was made to the lamp shade the darker color accentuated the object's contrast. This was eased by increasing the Lightness value of the shadow end of the tonal scale by a few points. Note that the Lightness value did not affect the actual color (which resides in the a and b channels.) Note also that the right side of the lamp shade maintained the tonal fidelity of the the original image. There were no masks or brushwork. A single layer Lab Curve correction is the only technique applied.
