Saturday, May 30, 2009 ·

This tutorial will teach you how to modify the colour of the car rims. You need to use Elliptical Marquee tool and various layer styles for this tutorial. I have used a free stock image which is available at:

Modify rim colour

Step 1

Open an image of a car in Photoshop

Step 2

Insert a new layer by selecting Layer > New > Layer.
Take the Elliptical Marquee tool and make a selection around the rims. You could alternatively use the polygon lasso tool or the quick mask tool, if you wish.

Step 3

Select paint bucket and fill the selection with your favourite colour. I have used #ffc350, but you can select whatever you wish.

Step 4

Change the blending option to Colour. You can experiment with various settings and choose the blending option you prefer. Then deselect the selection Ctrl + D.

Step 5 – optional

You may have noticed the brake discs and callipers have also changed colour. Use the eraser tool and carefully erase the colour.

You should now have a modify rim colour.
