How is the change of dress colors (demonstrated on the Plugin Site) done ?

Was some sort of masking used ?

Are there additional tutorials available ?

I'm using Photo Shop 7 and have tried every combination of sliders etc..
As this was demonstrated on the Plugin Site's web pages I know it can be done. Maybe I'm just to old to learn new tricks.

I think I was using the four "Color Replace - Blue to ..." presets for the dress example. To open these presets you just need to click on the arrow-down button at the left of the Mode combo box in LightMachine.

See the "Changing the Color of an Image Object" section of the LightMacine manual at ... bystep.htm
for detailed instructions.

Work using blue but !

Water lilies a Jpeg sample that I have (don't know where it came from) was easy.

How ever Blue Hills another Jpeg (shouldn't work) has some of the same problems that I ran into with my original picture. As it is all shades of blue a person would not expect to make much head way.

How ever in my original problem picture the back ground, various items and surroundings changed also. I was trying to change a red dress to blue.

Because the whole picture appeared to be effected, I tried to make sure there was no red shift by using color washer first. This did not help. Can color washer even recognize a red shift ?

Faces were turned blue, ground was turned blue and other items.

All of the software works phenomenally well for correcting pictures, I just wanted to do something fancy.

There are some images that have a color distributed all over the image or have the color in various objects in the image. With such images your only choice is to manually create a selection or mask.

I just sent you an email. Please send me your image by email and I will see if it works or if you need to use a selection or mask.
