How to convert one color to another (Color Theory, possibly Photoshop)

Msg#: 4423930 posted 1:35 am on Mar 2, 2012 (gmt 0)

I have a picture with green sky and I want to conver it to pink to match the rest of a website. I heave no problem with extracting the sky and creating a Layer Mask, but I am not sure if there is a way to figure out what color values would I need to use in order to get the results that I am looking for

So basically, I know the hex value of the originial color on the picture and the hex value of the final color that I want to convert it into. Is there any way to figure out the hex value of the color that I would need to use and put it between the two on a layer and blend it together or something like that? I've been doing something like this, for now, but I was only guessing the color (and using Hue blend mode in Photoshop), and I am not able to get the result that I want.

I also tried Replace Color option, but that doesnt work very well.

Thank you in advance for any info.

I'd first try using the Photoshop "Hue" slider under Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation... and I'd still try to work that process by eye. There is a lot to color that a numeric hex match might not give the best solution to. By experimenting with all three sliders (hue, saturation, brightness) I find I can usually get the most aesthetically pleasing final results in cases like this.

You can easily replace one color with another color using Photoshop one of the best image editing software used in web and graphics designing.First you select the portion you want to edit by using a selection tool such as pen tool or magic wand.Then you convert the selection path into a layer and adjust HUE option by pressing Ctrl +U.
