Posted By fershid 10 days ago on Design

https://digitalsynopsis.com - You can change the color of any object in Photoshop by creating a hue/saturation adjustment layer, and using the sliders and the eyedropper tool (here’s a one-minute tutorial on the same). However, when the object is white, a hue/saturation adjustment layer doesn’t convert it realistically no matter how high you turn up the saturation.

In this handy tutorial, Photoshop instructor Unmesh Dinda from PiXimperfect shows you how to use blend-if, adjustment layers, and blend modes to change white into any other color realistically, even black.

Unmesh uses solid color fill layers and multiply blend mode to project the desired color on the white object. He then uses curves and blend-if to add dimension and depth to make the object look natural and realistic. Watch here.

Very few things in design have never been done before so some of these trends feel like they’re referential of earlier movements of design. Styles can be revisited, they can be reinvented. Designers can use trends as inspiration, as a jumping off point to make it their own rather than just a copy directly.
