How do you change the color of a car?

What about sticky?

Step one: Find a cool picture. Well whatdaya know, there are some phat pictures right here on EverythingCelica! Kulod!

Step one (After you pick a picture, just pick a freakin picture! It's not that hard!!): Use the polygonal lasso tool to select the entire car! EXCLUDING THINGS SUCH AS SIDE MARKERS AND...other things that aren't supposted to be "color-changed-ded"

Step 6: Use the "Blending properties" for the blue layer. ("Color" usually works best for this) And make it look like it was fresh out of the paint booth.

There ya have it. This process usually works well on cars that have color (anything other then black white and grey.) Now I know some of you are thinking, why the hell did he have us duplicate the car the first time around!?!?! That guys a Jerk!!!! The reason you should duplicate the car is so if you need to mess around with the lighting, you can just bring up brightness/contrast/curves/ w/e and change the lighting of the car w/o changing the lighting of the entire scene. thumbsup

When it comes to black and white cars, you can use the same process, however, you WILL need to mess around with the brightness and whatnot to make the color look right. ALSO, you will need to select a different "Blending property". Such as multiply, or overlay, depending on the lighting/color and whatnot of the original picture.
If you have any questions regarding P/S or...anything, for that matter, feel free to drop me a PM!!! thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup

uh..im stuck on the first step tongue

how do i use the polygon lasso tool to select the other parts that i don't want to color-change (headlights/sidemarkets etc)?

after i select the body of the car, and try to select the headlights/Sidemarkers etc, the selective highlight for the body of the car goes away when i try to select the headlights etc

wtf? confused so how do i select the entire car AND the headlights/windshield/Sidemarkers etc all at the same time???

and also, when i use the paint bucket, i have to press a million times to get the car one color, how do you do it eyger? be more specific please smile

and..you said the car needs to be on its own layer? how do i go about doing this when i use the polygon tool?

^^i can answer your last two questions ...

1. when you have the paintbucket in use...play with the tolerance and the other buttons at the top until it fills more at a time... thumbsup

2. he means make the car its own layer by...after the car is outlined with the polygonal lasso...press "ctrl c" to copy...and right after without doing anything else...press ctrl v to paste a copy of the cr right on top of the existing original one...

also you said something about the lasso not letting you outline other things such as the windshield and the headlights...etc...well...i just go near the bottom right and select "layers" and and chose "color" to allow everything from the original layer to show through except the parts you colored...good luck...hope this helps thumbsup

yeah i think it would be a lot easier of i could select multi parts of the car at the same time like you guys. when one thing is selected if i try to start another that one goes away... do i need to change something in the settings?
