Learn to alter the hue of any object within Photoshop by using the adjustment layer for Hue/Saturation. No matter if you’re trying to alter the hue of clothes or products, hair or anything else, this technique is essential for any Photoshop artist. In addition, you’ll alter the hue, but also master the art of fine-tuning color so that you get the most effective outcomes in no time. With no further explanation now, let’s get into this tutorial!

Step 1: Download an Image

This is an image of a car for this video tutorial, which you can save by clicking here. It is possible to use any image you like, but ensure that you have a rich color and it’s also a good option to stay clear of pictures that are similar in shade to your topic. The card is yellow and we’ll alter the colour of the car into any hue using the incredibly powerful Hue/Saturation adjust layer.

The image can be seen as I’ve opened the photo within Photoshop using the menu the File menu and then Open.

Step 2. – Select Color using Hue/Saturation

Create an Hue/Saturation layer by clicking the Layer menu and selecting A New Adjustment Layer and then Hue/Saturation. Then, you can include to the Hue and Saturation adjustment layer over the to the top layer of your stack, which can be seen in the image below.

Just below the Presets tab There is A drop-down listing, which allows you to switch the color to yellow. The car’s color is yellow, it’s evident that to target the yellow hue after which we’ll alter the hue using the slider.

Select the color Yellow from the Dropdown List after which move on the Hue Slider to change the colour of the vehicle. You can see that in the image below, I switched the color of my car from green to yellow. Pick any hue and then drag the slider of Hue to play around.

Step 3: Accurate Coloring by using Mask Layer Mask

Each adjustment layer is an integrated layer mask which shows a an undefined rectangular white shape next to the Hue/Saturation Layer that form is the mask. The effect will be hidden by masking Hue/Saturation in the background, and let it be visible only on the vehicle using an image mask.

The image below explains that Hue/Saturation is also changing the hue of the background, such as grass, trees as well as other things. The goal is to get rid of the effect of Hue/Saturation from these objects and only do this by using an image mask.

Choose the Pen tool (P) and trace the background. Additionally, you can make use of the Quick Selection Tool (W) to speed your process, however using the Pen tool (P) gives you an accurate choice than any other tool to select and this is the reason I’ve employed the Pen Tool.

After you have completed making a trace of the background, press the Select button to make a selection from the background.

After pressing the the Selection Button You’ll be able to see that your selection has been activated, we’ll then load the selection in the layer mask for Hue/Saturation.

For this, you must first check that foreground color has been turned off by pressing (D) after which press Alt+ Backspace to fill the mask layer using black.

It will provide you with outcomes that resemble this image:

In order to make the effect of Hue/Saturation visible to the rear of your car it is necessary to reverse the layers mask result with CTRL +. Alternately, you could paint over the layer mask for Hue/Saturation with a black shade over those areas that you don’t wish to see any changes.

If you reverse the results of layer masking, you’ll be able to see the colors visible only in the car.

Step 4 – Fixing Small imperfections

If you zoom in on the image, and move it through the image, you’ll see some parts with no colour. You can fix the problem by painting over them using a smooth circular brush.

In the below picture what I’m talking about.

To repair these issues to fix them, you can create a new layer with the help of the CTRL+SHIFT + N and naming it “coloring”.

Find the hue close to the area, before painting on the area.

When you’ve filled the regions, you may alter the blend mode to darken for the painting to blend into the hue with that of the vehicle. Although these areas appear to be barely noticeable, they can be left in the way you like, however painting them over with the mix mode can help you fix these types of glitches as well as mistakes.

Additionally, you can apply a Hue/Saturation coloring layer in order to alter the color of the paint in case you wish to alter the color of your vehicle later.

5. Modify the Color at Any Moment

Now that everything is in place, it is possible to double-click the adjustment layer for Hue/Saturation and explore your settings, changing the hue again and over and over. Make sure to experiment using your Hue, Saturation & Lightness slider to achieve the most optimal outcomes.
