Question about photoshop

Posted by hlove (My Page) on

I'd like to photoshop pics of our home's exterior in different colors, so we can decide which paint will look best. Is there a decent/relatively easy way to do this w/o using Adobe photoshop? I've tried whatever paint program I have on my computer, but it just comes out looking like a mess.

If you post a photo i can do it for you. I have a smaller scaled down version of photoshop but it can give you the idea.

Love your kitchen btw!!

RE: Question about photoshop

Thanks, Amy...for the offer and for the compliment!

I'd feel very guilty asking you to do that... are you sure?

no problem...

Positive! I can not guarantee any sort of perfection but i will try my best. It is great practice for me!

RE: Question about photoshop

Okay, then! I have two or three color schemes I'd like to try out, but I think I need to take a pic of the house that also shows my neighbors' houses. Even though all of the houses are old and there is a variety of color, I'd hate to paint something that looks horrible next to the neighbors'!

My one neighbor just repainted, so I know the house will stay that color. Pretty sure the other one will stay the same, too. Anyway, I'll probably post back later today or tomorrow. Thanks again!!!

RE: Question about photoshop

Use a hue/saturation layer or paint on a new layer in color blend mode. Painting on a normal layer just looks like a mess.
