In this video tutorial, watch as I show you how to create any change any color in Photoshop with the hue/saturation adjustment slider. It really is as simple as a few clicks and gives a really good effect.
In the video, I will show you three examples of how we can use it, from a simple color change to tackling harder images where the color range is not as easy to distinguish. Photoshop is full of quick little tricks like this, and even though a beginner can do it, sometimes it is just about knowing the technique. There are a thousand ways to do one thing in Photoshop, so always start with the easiest way first. In the hue/saturation slider, you can pretty much completely change the look and feel of an image with the tools in that one box.
As the tutorial goes on, I will move on to a more creative way to use the hue slider. With some small shifts, you can change the color of a person’s skin. This comes in handy when getting creative and making zombies. You can shift the skin to a sickly green and with some refinement, even bring some of the red colors back into the veins.
This tutorial is great for anyone who wants to do a quick and dirty color swap in seconds. And it is not limited to the ways it is used in this tutorial; as with anything in Photoshop, if you experiment, it can be used in ways most people probably wouldn’t think of. Have fun.
