Change the color of clothes

Sometimes, when processing an image, the task is not just to change the color of the clothes, but to add some kind of drawing. From this lesson you will learn one of the ways to solve this problem.

Part 1. Texture
In my case, this effect required a camouflage texture, but since I encountered difficulties during the search, I had to create this texture myself.

Step 1. Create a new document size 500×500 pixels Fill with white. Making sure that the colors on the default color palette (key “D“), Apply Filter Rener – Difference clouds (Filter – Rendering – Clouds with overlay). Repeat this action with the filter 4-5 times (Ctrl + F)

Step 2 Apply Filter – Blur – Gaussian blur (Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur) with a blur radius of about 8 pixels.

Image – Adjustment – Levels (Image – Correction – Levels). Slide the sliders so that the image gets clear boundaries. In my case it turned out like this:

Step 3. Now armed Magic Wand(Magic Wand), remove the white color. The result was a blank for texture. Let’s call this layer “Color 1

Step 4. Create a new layer, rename it to “Background” and move it on the layers palette under the layer “Color 1“. Let’s make activeColor 1“, And create two duplicates. Let’s call them “Color 2“And”Color 3“Respectively.

Step 5. Now we need a color scheme corresponding to the camouflage colors. Walking around the Ineta, I found out which colors correspond to camouflage.
Colour 3 – # 000000
Color 2 – # 7d6e4b
Colourone – # 46320f
Background – #323c19

So the layer Background fill color # 323c19.
Go to layer Colourone:
Layer – Layer style – Color overlay (Layer – Layer Style – Color Overlay) Color # 46320f.

This action is repeated for layers. Color 2 . Layer Color 3 remains unchanged.

Step 6. Layers Color3 and Color2 temporarily invisible. Click on the Color1 layer to make it active. Further we use Free Transform (Free Transformation) Ctrl +T and holding Shift, stretch the layer outside the canvas.

This is necessary for safety net, because, when removing step 3 white, between the edge of the canvas and the layer, a gap with a transparent pixel width of 1-2 pixels could appear, which, with further use of the texture, will give an undesirable effect.

Turn on visibility for the layer Color2, using Free Transform, stretch and change the position of the layer.

The same action is repeated for the layer. Color3.

Approximately this texture should have you in the end.

Step 7. Save this pattern as texture. Edit – Define Pattern (Editing – Define a pattern).

Part 2. Using texture
Step 1. Open the photo on which we are going to work. I, for example, took the girl from the template.

Step 2. Select the selection tool Pen (Feather) or Magnetic Lasso (Magnetic Lasso), select the items of clothing and copy to a new layer.

Step 3. Apply to one of the layers. Layer – Layer Style – Pattern Overlay (Layer – Layer style – Pattern overlay). Since in my case the task was to create only a hint of camouflage, then the settings I got are as follows:

Tip: if you are not satisfied with the position of the pattern (texture) on the clothes, then you, with the settings of the pattern overlay open, hover the cursor over the image and, holding the LMB, move the texture.

Step 4. Next, click PKM On the “stylized” layer and in the drop-down menu, select Copy Layer style (Copy layer style). Then make active the next layer with clothes, click PKM and in the drop-down menu, select Past Layer style (Paste the layer style). If necessary, play with the settings Levels (Levels) Brightness /Contrast (Brightness / Contrast)

That’s what I got in the end.
