i was wondering if someone here experienced in photoshop would be generous enough to help me with some skinning techniques? i'm trying to make a skin and i have ideas... but i'm not sure how to go about doing them.
i posted on master skinners and i havent gotten any replies. here's one of the things i'm trying to figure out how to do.
i have a picture of some japanese characters in light red with a dark red circle in the background background. i wanted to change the writing to light blue and the circle to dark blue... is there a tool in Photoshop that could do this, or do i have to manually?
i know i can do it by changing each color to a darker or lighter blue using the color range and fill tools... but there's gotta be a better way.
Trouble with a colourize filter is that it coverts everything to different shades of one colour. I appreciate you can have some control by selecting different parts of the image before you run the filter, but that graphic is small and quite low quality, meaning that it would be tough to select ALL of the pixels which need colourising. The end result would probably be a few random red pixels around the edge of the text which would be a pain in the arse to colour individually.
Honest opinion, the best option would be to recreate the decal.
