How To: Use color correction in Photoshop

Use color correction in Photoshop

Pixel Perfect is the "perfect" show to help you with your Photoshop skills. Be amazed and learn as master digital artist Bert Monroy takes a stylus and a digital pad and treats it as Monet and Picasso do with oil and canvas. Learn the tips and tricks you need to whip those digital pictures into shape with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. In this episode, Ben shows you how to use color correction in Photoshop.

Bert shows us how to change colors on shirts, on cars and in our lives, through colorization.

Bert changes the color in different images with a variety of colorization methods.

First, Bert alters a blue shirt to match the red color of another image with the color match function and path tool. Next, a dull grey car is given life with a dramatic paint job by adjusting the mode of the paint brush (to color), outlining the car with the pen tool and filling in the color using hue and saturation. Then, Bert selects only one color to change in a photograph of a taxi by using the selective color adjustment. Finally, by selecting the lab color mode and inverting layers, Bert easily turns a red motorcycle into a myriad of new colors.
