How to Turn White Color into Another Color using Photoshop

Changing the color of an object in your image using Photoshop is fairly easy. However, if an object you like to change is white, it may be challenging to give it a new color in a realistic fashion. But there is a way to do it and do it quickly. Here, we will teach you step-by-step to turn white color into another color and make it look more natural using Photoshop software tools.

Simple Steps to Turn White into Any Color in Photoshop

Step 1

Open your image which you want to change color in adobe photoshop and make a selection of the white area using any method you like and refine the layer mask later.

Step 2

Once you are done making the selection of the white area, create a solid color adjustment layer and pick any bright color you like. After that, you need to change the blending mode to multiply, to get a decent effect. Sometimes, this may be the only thing you need to do and other times you will need some more adjustments to get a more natural and realistic result.


Step 3

In this step, you can also add a Curves adjustment layer and adjust the contrast. You only need to apply Curves to the selection. The simplest way to do it is to group the Solid Color and the Curves adjustment layer mutually and apply the mask to the group. This way, any changes you make will only be applied to the white area.

This above three steps will be the same, but the final result may look a bit flat when you work with dark colors. So, it’s time to add some highlights.

Step 4

Add one more curves adjustment layer on top of the one which you created previously. Click in the center area and drag the point up to make the image brighter.

Step 5

Open the layer style box of the new curves adjustment layer. Under the blend if, go to the underlying layer slider and drag the black point to the right. This limits the highlights but gives very harsh transitions. Hold the Alt/Option key and split the slider for smoother transitions. This makes the black area a bit “shiny” and adds depth to the image. You can repeat this once more if you are not satisfied with the result.

3 Steps to Create a Scribble Effect Animation in After Effects


Step 1: Arrange the Workspace

First, add some cartoonish flames that will come off the back of a race car. After that add the flames using the brush tool, which you can find it in the tools panel or by using the CMD (Mac) or CTRL (PC) + B Keyword shortcut.

This brush tool only works on the layer panel by double-clicking on the layer – You can’t click directly on the composition panel.

Step 2: Prepare the Brush

Select the brush tool, both the paint and brush panels will become visible. These both panels offer a variety of options. The paint panel allows you to change the opacity, diameter, flow, color, blend mode and duration. Clicking on diameter button will bring you to the brushes panel, where you can specify the diameter, roundness, hardness, angle and spacing of brush. Even you can save the brush settings for future use.

One of the most important properties is the duration section of paint panel. This is a fast-moving clip, to animate flames as quickly and frenetically as possible. Due to this reason, you have to change the duration to “Single Frame.” If you want something a bit more subdued or clunky, then change the duration to “Custom” and then manually type in whatever frame rate you want. With both the workspace and brush ready, now it’s time to use the scribble effect animation inside adobe after effect.

Step 3: Scribble Effect Animation

To start Scribble Effect animation lets bring playhead to the first frame of the clip in the timeline. Using the brush tool directly on the layer panel, draw flames on the first frame. It’s not as simple as drawing the same flames for every frame. This particular clip is two seconds in length, shot at 25 fps, so if you want flames throughout the entire clip, then you need to draw these same flames 50 times. If you are going to create an animation that changes over time, it’s imperative to know the length of a clip so you can make subtle changes.

Knowing a few shortcuts will save your lots of time when creating a frame-by-frame animation. To quickly navigate by individual frames in After Effects, use the Page Up/Down keys. To resize the diameter of the brush, hold the Command (Mac) or Control (PC) key while you click and drag up or down.
