In this article, I'll explain how to change the color of a selection in Photoshop. I'm sure there are a couple different ways to do this in photoshop, but this is my preferred method in Photoshop. I am using Photoshop CS6 and I will be adjusting the color balance of selection. In this particular image, I will change the guys striped shirt to a blue striped shirt.

Step One: Open Image

First open your image. Duplicate the image layer and work in a copied layer. Select "Layer" in top menu > Select "Duplicate Layer". Now I have two layers that I name "original" and "copy". I do this as a way to preserve the original image. Alternatively, you could duplicate the actual image and open the copy only. If working with two layers, don't forget to turn off the original layer and only work in the copied layer.

Step Two: Trace the shape

I use the pen tool to Trace my image. There are some good tutorials out there for tracing. See this one or this one.
I find a point to start on the shirt and work around the edge by adding pen points around the shape. If the path I'm tracing doesn't match the shape I'm trying to trace, I quickly switch to the Direct Select Tool (white arrow tool) to adjust the bezier handles that show up on each point to better manipulate the shape to match my traced outline.

Introduction

When sharing photos, especially via e-mail, the large resolution images that most cameras take today make for extremely large file sizes. The time required to upload these files to forums, send in e-mails, post to blogs or even placing them on a web server via ftp, can take FOREVER!

Common Situation

If you are lucky (like me), you have a large monitor and a fast Internet connection, so the wait is only a few seconds when uploading or viewing large images. But what about the monitor size and more importantly the internet connection speed of your customers, clients, friends and family? If they do not share a similar set up, which they probably do not, then they are left waiting minutes to view each picture.

But you say, “Resizing all 150 photos from our family trip will take forever”. Ah, but this is where Photoshop can help, by allowing you to resize multiple images at once and do so very easily!

What is Required

For this tutorial, I am using Photoshop CS5 Extended; however I have tested this back to Photoshop CS3 successfully and it may work on other versions as well. If you do not have Adobe Photoshop, you can download a free trial here:
Photoshop Trial Download

And of course, you will need a few images that you wish to resize.

Getting Started

Open Photoshop and select File -> Scripts -> Image Processor Image Processing Main
If you have images already opened in Photoshop, then the option “Use Open Images” will be available next to [b][i]Step #1[/b][/i]

HOW TO CREATE A WEB 2.0 IMAGE WITH A REFLECTION

I would like to start by saying I know Web 2.0 isn't a style. It is actually the practice of information sharing or  collaboration on the Web. It is also associated with the technology that is used to create the "Web 2.0" sites, or designs. I am referring to this tutorial as Web 2.0, because it is commonly mis-interpreted as the glossy button, image reflection type look of the current fad or design style for web designs. This article is about design, so that is enough technical garb. If you would like to learn more about the meaning of Web 2.0, here is a link to the Wikipedia article: Wikipedia.

I am using Photoshop CS4 for this article. Photoshop has been pretty good about keeping many of the tools consistent, if you are using another version you should be fine. IF you can't find the tools I mention in the article, or if you have any questions post them to this article and I will try to help you find them. I was going to post a link to their locations, but there are several versions.


1. Setting up your work space

The first thing you should do is reset Photoshop Preferences so the tools work as expected for this tutorial. To reset the preferences on a PC (hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift and open Photoshop), for MAC users (Command+Option+Shift). If you do it correctly you should see a dialog box that says are you sure you want to delete Photoshop preferences? Click yes and continue.
