Expanding Horizons – Replacing a Color

Have you ever wanted to know how to change the color of flowers, balloons, or someone’s shirt in photoshop?  Take a look at my newest video (just under 8 minutes long) on how to replace a color nondestructively so you can go back and change the color later with just a click of a button.  Oh the joys of technology!  The techniques shown here are useful in so many other applications, not just replacing a color.

As a side note, I’ve ordered a headset with a microphone so the audio quality will be a lot better in the future.  Thank goodness for iMovie to reduce the noise in post production.  It’s still not that great but it’s a lot better than the original, trust me.  OY!
