Wardrobe Change

with No Comments

I have a brother who absolutely refuses to change his clothes for family pictures. He messes up my whole, color coordinated plan. As I searched for how to fix this problem, I came across the Replace Color tool. Beware, brother! Since I am an avid scrapbooker, I also found it extremely handy in changing digital papers and elements to match my pictures.

Step 1) Open your paper

  • I chose a red paper that I like, but the yellow needs to be changed.

Step 2) Open the Replace Color dialog box

  • Choose Enhance >Adjust Color > Replace Color.

  • If the Replace Color dialog box is covering your paper, click on the bar across the top of the dialog box and move it to the side.
  • Make sure ‘Preview’ is checked in the upper, right corner of the dialog box.

Step 3) Choose the color you want to change

  • Move your mouse over your paper, and it becomes an eyedropper.
  • Click on the color you want to change in your paper.

Step 4) Choose the replacement color

  • In the Replacement section at the bottom of the dialog box, click on the color chip.
  • When the Color Picker dialog box appears, click on the vertical bar to get the main color, and click inside the large box to get a shade of that color.
  • Click OK.

Step 5) Finishing up

  • The Fuzziness slider changes how many similar colors will be selected and changed to the new color. Move the Fuzziness slider to the right to choose more similar colors. Move it to the left to choose fewer similar colors.
  • The Hue, Saturation, and Lightness sliders will change the color of the replacement color.
  • When you’re satisfied, click OK.

Voila!

Now you can modify paper you already have to match your photos beautifully!
