Photoshop Quick Tip: Color replacement tool rocks!

Here's a quick Photoshop tip: Use the Color Replacement Brush (nested in the Brush tool on the Tool Bar) to change the color of an object or subject in an image.

Below is a shot I took this past weekend on my Plymouth, MA workshop. The workshop was organized by Amy Davies, who heads up the Plymouth Photography Club.

Above is my processed/enhanced image.

I used the Color Replacement Brush to change the color of the model's dress - picking a color (using the Eye Dropper tool and the Color Picker) from the wall.

After changing the color the dress, I softened the picture using the Pastel filter in Nik Color Efex Pro, and then added a Vignette filter, also in Nik Color Efex Pro.

P.S. I teach this kinda stuff on my workshops.

Rick, I think u are such a an amazing photographer, and talented post production smartypants!! I appreciate your hard work and your sharing your talent with all of us. I wished I had it in me more and its frustrating to not be where you want to be photographically when you have the h tools and wherewithal, but are limited by being in a creative funk and can't get out. Very frustrating because it is the most important thing next to my family. Anyways, thanks again for your contributions.
