Changing the Colour of Cupid's Clothes in Photoshop
So in looking for something to chat about today I decided to try my hand at some Photoshop fun with a great image from iCLIPART.com.
Having chosen image #179284 I decided to play with the colour of cupid's clothes, as I thought a livelier shade of red might be fun. Opening the image in the program, I selected the Magic Wand tool and clicked on the tunic, then set the tolerance to 100 per cent. With the Paint Bucket Tool, I chose the colour I wanted and clicked inside the highlighted area. Beyond easy.
Another option for quickly changing a colour is to use 'Edit' > 'Fill'. This was the process I used to alter the shoes, for no other reason than because I could. The end result is the playful image accompanying this blog. And more results of my playtime will follow in the days leading up to Feb. 14.
