I am sure there are other ways of doing this, but the way i would choose to do this is to use the "Magic Wand" tool in Photoshop and select the area you would like to change and then colour it in the desired colour.

Again, i think there are probbly better ways of doing this, but as a means of trying something out you could use that?

I was going to direct the answer down one of the two routes that 613flavah has posted - you've got all you need for both circumstances now.

Wow, all thoughs ways can be really long and tedias(<<spell check). Also, using the magic wand is not all that precise and extremely difficult to use in small places, epecially if your doing hair or eyelashes. The best way I found, is to use: image>adjustments>replace color...Match the settings in the example image. With the eyedropper+ drag it over every color you want to desaturate and click ok. All done. now if you want you can go back and this time select the color you just isolated and adjust the saturation.

You didn't say which graphics app you were using. If you're using fireworks you can draw a vector of the outline of the lips and use a blend mode of color.

Hooperman was asking psuedofy what software he was using and not what OriginNo_II was using to do what he did.

Hooperman, it looks like CE/Pyrocy misread your first post.

:wink:

Just a to add, with playing about with the tools on photoshop i actually managed to change the colour of the eye a bit so it stood out a bit more.

I am not joking though, it took no more than 5 minutes to do that if you read the replies left.




// I also note that it is "Impel GD" and not "Impel_GD". I'm not sure what made me think there was an underscore there :lol:

now why would i make a post such as that without having checked out all the links and read all the posts? i did and i was still having trouble but after some tampering i found out what was wrong: the mode for the brush was on color dodge....i didnt know that the colors on the face were supposed to change in real time which was why i thought i was doing something wrong.


once again thank you for insulting my intelligence :iconthumbright:

Well, posts such as the following don't usually get the best responses due to a lack of information and perceived manners:

That being the case, maybe you'd like to consider thanking those who have spent time linking to, explaining and demonstrating the techniques instead of insinuating they're talking rubbish? There's been at least three contributors who've posted good stuff for you.

Or maybe you'd like your money back? :roll:

now what difference would it make if i said thank you? will it make the world at peace? or will it cause a chaotic imbalance that will only be fixed by an equally opposite "your welcome"? will the sun not rise or fall? will gravity cease to exist?
will string theory find a formula?
or will quantum physics be understood as well as myspace.com is?

saying thank you....it seems to only please the uber hedonists...

now even if i did say thank you to all who helped me, i'm still left with the feeling of being a b**** because of what you said...which seemed to me to be some sort of psychology. and also because of what you said....if i were to actually say thank you now, it would render it a hollow comment...seeing as how it was [reverse psychology] forced upon [/reverse psychology]
so im forced with a difficult decision...
i will get back to you on this one :study:

You could have saved yourself the hassle and embarassment by actually admitting that you want to appreciate all that people have done for you. Afterall, it is the least you could have done after your post before claiming how you aparently had not recieved sufficient help to do what you were wanting to do. You were proved wrong, yet you never said sorry for your comments.

Your last post just made this go more OTT than it should have. It is just good manners to say "thank you" or "please" when you require someone to go out of their way to help you out. So far you have failed to show any, i really don't know why anyone actually helped you.

What is wrong with showing some respect to those had helped you out by saying "thank you"?

Quite simply, it would show you appreciate peoples' efforts and act as a small incentive for them to continue helping you with this and other questions you may have.

Your attitude has been off right from your first reply to my question asking for clarification. Learn some manners; then start on Photoshop.

well just to clear it up a bit...
impel_GD the first comment i made back to you...it wasnt meant to be taken as rude...i tried to understand what you were getting at....but it just seemed as if there was no way around that question...looking at it now im sure there could have been one other way to rephrase it.... id love to say sorry but something tells me you'd laugh.

now moving on a bit more.
my previous article....it wasnt meant to be taken to heart....i say thank you most of the time that i am helped in any situation...it seems as if it was misunderstood.
its just sometimes i like to get into a philosophical debate...its easy to take it as rude sarcasm...especially when you have no facial expressions nor verbal tones. for that i do apologize.

and another one...SB
i understand that the post i made saying " i cant do it i need help" something to that effect.
i understand now that it was insufficient information...and i know that alot of problems could stem from miscommunications. a perfect example.
but when you posted the picture up with the work done and you seemed to be boasting saying: 5 minutes...just read 5 minutes i got this from 613 flavah's second post.
i took offense to that...it seemed as if you were either trying to insult me...or make me look stupid.
i guess not
so then i do apologize for the misintrepretations to all

its just the way i am i take things in the wrong way most of the time...its called oversensitivity

,thanks all

Well, i apologise to you if you took offence to what i posted. It wasn't intended to be that.

It dosn't interest me to annoy people, so it is not something i tend to do intentionally often.

Happy faces all round now? :wink:
