How to change the color of any object in Photoshop

Color picker tool to change color object in Photoshop

One of the most useful features of Photoshop is the tool to change objects and areas in your images. It’s very easy to use and you can replace a manual coloration of each area. You can eliminate light effects such as reflections, providing a more natural-like style. Using the color effect you can completely remove reflection and shadows. You just have to follow these steps to replace the color of an object:

First we have to open the image in Photoshop and select the object whose color we will change. Although the process to change color of clothing items is a bit more complicated, the steps are more or less the same. You select the object with the Object Selection Tool and then we open the Image menu. Within it you will press on Adjustments and select the Replace Color option.

Then a new window appears and we have to select the Image box and the color picker. Choose the color you want to replace and confirm with the OK button. The following step is to check the Result box at the bottom and select the color we want to appear on the object. You will see the new version immediately. Each color has its own adjustment menu where you can select brightness, saturation and hue for the desired aspect.

After the confirmation Photoshop will replace the color code of the object we picked with the color picker with the one we choose. The next step is to make modifications to lightning effects to obtain the tone we search for. Remember to always use the same color code to replace so Photoshop can adapt the lightning features. If you select the color manually you won’t ever pick exactly the same tone and the results will differ.
