This Car tutorial will teach you how to change the colour of car lights in Photoshop. You need to use the lens flare filter and hue/saturation tools for this tutorial. I have used a free stock image of a car which is available from: www.sxc.hu
Change colour of car lights
Open an image of car in Photoshop.
Insert a new layer Ctrl + Shift + N.
Take the paint brush tool with an appropriate brush size and paint the areas of the car lights in a black colour like below:
Select Filter > Render > Lens Flare and move the crosshair to the centre of one of the black areas you painted. Now change the brightness to 70 % and the lens type to 105mm Prime.
Repeat this for the other black area you painted.
Change the layer blending option to “Screen” like below:
Select Image > Adjustment > Hue/Saturation and adjust the sliders to your liking. I have selected the following settings.
Remember to check the Colorize checkbox.
You should now have a different colour car lights.
