Changing background colour etc

Postby sunnylass on Mon Jul 23, 2007 6:07 pm

I've had a quick look through the posts to make sure I'm not doubling up on a question.

I have some images of coffee mugs etc that I have some of my photos printed on, and I want to find a fairly easy way to change the background colour on the images, without having to do it the tedious way in psp.

If anyone knows a relatively simple way to do this, I would be very grateful. :P

Sunnylass - what method are you describing as 'tedious'? In Photoshop, it couldn't be simpler if you've got a single colour background - just use the magic wand tool to select it then use Image/Adjustments/Hue Saturation or Colour Replacement to make the colour change. If you could be a bit more specific about exactly what it is you wish to change we can offer up some suggestions. :lol:

Hi Simon,

I've made tubes in paintshoppro and that so far is the only way I have learnt to change the background colour.

I have pics of mugs etc, and I just want to change the colour behind the mug.

Ooo... I know diddly-squat about PaintShop Pro, sorry SL. However... this place is bound to have a few members who know exactly what you're after.

C'mon folks - any PSP gurus out there?

I only mentioned PSP because I know how to do tubes in that software.

I use Photoshop more, but I tried that method you just suggested and it didnt work.

I am blonde though, I'm probably doing something wrong.

I'd pick the tower up and hurl it out the door but it would hurt my neck :wink:

SL - can you post or email one of the pics you're trying to change? I'll PM my email address if you prefer that way.
