Changing a Car’s Color in Photoshop

In this tutorial, you are going to use the Hue/Saturation function in Adobe Photoshop to change the color of a car.
1) Load the image you would like to work on in Photoshop.
For this tutorial, I am making use of the image below:
2) We are going to add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer onto this image.
To do this, in the Layers Panel, look for this icon:
3) Left-click the icon and select Hue/Saturation.
This opens the Hue/Saturation panel for the adjustment layer.
4) In the Adjustments panel, make the following changes:
And this is just about it. The color changes from Red/Orange to Green.
One important thing to note here is that this function works so well for the image I have used because the color Red is only present in the car’s body and not elsewhere in the picture.
Otherwise, every part of the image that was Red would change to Green, and frankly, you could end up with a very nasty image.
