I took this shot with my phone knowing it was going to be fairly small and lacking in quality. However, the dog made it even more challenging when she crashed into my leg during one of her mad racing…Continue

I just ran across this so I gave it a shot.  Like others, I found it harder that I thought to begin with due to the child's clothing being very dark blue or black.  Here is the bes i could do.  I didn't change the background which Steve nicely did.  I did remove some lens distortion as well.

Nicely done Stevie!  I like the background much better.

I gave it a go.  Not as simple as first thought.  Instead of painting red on a new layer pick a solid color adjustment layer the color you'd like and then ctrl-I to invert the layer mask to black and paint white on the mask to reveal the red color. Then change the mode.  This way you can adjust the color afterwards.  I somewhat tried to remove the extra hand and darken the area.  Not sure if it looks better with the hand or edited out.  I can share what I did to get it there if interested.

Superb info Barb, great details. Maybe Stevie will give us his feedback on this?

Try this:  New Adjustment Layer>B&W, adjust the blue slider to lighten the blue jumper, say ok.  Ctrl-I will hide the black and white layer.  Go to your brush and paint over the jumper with white to reveal it.  Then go to Layer>New Layer>Layer and click on the color swatch and pick a red you like and paint over the jumper on the new layer.  Then change the Mode in the pull down menu that sits in the layer pallet to Color or Soft Light.  You'll need to adjust the Opacity slider to the right of the mode.  This will get you started

Or you can make the selection then go to "Edit > Adjustments > Hue & Saturation" and move the color slider to the desired color.

When you use the "Brush" tool you can select (in the options bar at the top) Transparency. This will keep the integrity of the subject.

Comment by Robert Davis on November 28, 2013 at 10:18am

Sure. First make a selection, then change the color via transparency. The blue in the bib is a color balance issue.

Couldn't miss the chance to play around with your image Robert, here's the end result.

Comment by Robert Davis on July 28, 2013 at 9:03am


Would like to see all of you play with this image possibly creating something ethreal - don't worry about my feelings with this one, just dive in and go for broke. A couple ideas I have are textures and lots of over-lays. Have fun with this one.
