I am trying to make a photograph all blue, in such a way that the darkest shade is a specific shade of blue and every other colour is simply a lighter shade of the blue colour i specified.
If you need to see an example of what I am talking about - I can stickymail you a url showing exactly what I am looking for.
Any ideas would be about the best thing that could happen to me all week.
i need to able to specify the darkest shade of blue. Can't do that using the channel mixer - unless I have missed something.
hue/sat does look like the option actually - but how would I approximate to the correct blue - could take all day using trial and error.
Then go to the top pull-down menu: Image-Adjust-Hue/Saturation and press the little button that says, "Colorize."
Of course, another method is to create a layer over the layer you want to colorize, then fill it with the color you want. Then, play with the blending modes (on your floating palette (not to be confused with the floating bar), it's in the tab that says Layers, and is usually defaulted at Normal) Try using screen, or overlay, all the while playing around with the Opacity scale.
This can get really fun. I've literally spent hours discovering new images and effects by layering color on color, layer on layer.
thanks - tried this and no luck - just doesn't match the foreground colour. the sliders (hue, sat, light) seem to stay where they were the last time i messed around with them - can they be reset or something?
To have more of your base color shine through and have less lighter areas, simply apply some Levels-changes on Layer 0.
If that won´t do the trick, Stickymail me that URL... :)
