Hey ...you slipped in just as I was putting up a quick edit, I reduced the hot spot from the spotlight (which shows up a lot more after color correction) to help with the viewing so when you look again you will see a change.



Basically if you have PS add a new layer and fill with the color, I opted for overlay but in some examples layer mode color or even one of the lights like soft light can be better. Then mask out what is not needed like so see mask image.


Grey border is just so it can be seen here

Which tool do you use to draw through the mask so that you can see underneath?

Black hides, and White reveals so if you apply a mask with reveal all it will be white and you paint with black to hide things, if you use a mask with hide all it will be all black and you paint with white to reveal things. (Paint with normal brush, the color is what does it) Levels of opacity created shades of gray and create a semi opaque mask area.

How did you get the exact straight lines and stuff? That's what I always have trouble with.

Sorry about the color mixup. I actually saw the first pic and copied it before you posted the third. When I came back to the forum, I went directly to the last post and didn't see that you had marked the color.

I used Photoimpact for this, as it is much simpler for me. I simply selected the wall with the rectanglular selection tool, which is how the lines are straight. (the only way I get straight lines) I the copied the selection and used the color replacement tool to shift the hue and saturation. I did have to do a quick erase on parts of the paintings and the statuette as well as the fireplace. The whole process took about five minutes.

2 ways on this one, like VT I used the rectangular select tool in several places and two the polygonal selection (under lasso) this allows you to select point to point rather than freehand draw. Then when painting in Photoshop a big saver is click down with the left mouse button then hold shift and click someplace else and it draws straight between the 2 points. this is a great technique for outlining then you can fill the rest in easily.

My 2c worth ....

Photoshop - Lasso & fill, all the various gizmos, replace color, changing hue & saturation and light/dark. I should have written it all down.
