Change Colors or Swap Out Material

Professional photo editors and retoucher spent a lot of time to change the color in a photo. Spins are tasks of selecting a product model. Changing colors or changing the position of materials in a photo. It is a very creatively demanding work.

The color matching and recoloring come into a place where you want to represent the product in the image like a real product. It's not good for e-commerce business when customers see one color representation of the product and get opposite experience when getting your product.

Change color for e-commerce products:

In e-commerce business, the customers only have images that can share information about your product. The customers get the idea how the product will look like, how it will be like to wear or use when they buy it. They get an initial expression about the colour, shape, and usability of the product through your product image.

It is very problematic for the client if they get a product that does not meet their initial expectation. It's very harmful to your business and you lose trust from clients which is the foundation of online business.

So The fundamental concept of product photography is representing the product as real as possible to the customers. That's why changing colors and recoloring is a fundamental phase of product photography editing.


Product color change initiation:

The first of this photography starts off by capturing the photo itself. You have to take into consideration during the photo shoot, that these images will be post-processed for changing or swapping colours. You can set up a beauty dish with diffusion just over the product. You can add a soft box with diffusion with your setup. Put the wire through the product. This will make it easy to bend and get any angle you want to shoot a photo from.

Editing to change the color of products:

The raw image is the best option for this kind of editing in photography. The raw image gives you complete control without losing any detail information in the image. You can start working on the raw image using the Adobe Camera plugin for Photoshop. You can change colours in Photoshop using different techniques.

The sequence of changing color in Photoshop:

Select the portion of the image you need to change. The Quick Selection tool in Photoshop regularly delivers great outcomes. For extra strategies, select a shading extent and Refine determination edges. In the Adjustments board, tap the Hue/Saturation symbol. The determination turns into a mask on the adjustment layer.

In the Properties board, change Hue and Saturation settings to replace the colour of the portion that you selected. On the off chance, the first shading tints the new shading.

Select Colorize, and straighten out settings. Leave the Lightness setting at zero to look after differentiation. To keep up both difference and immersion, select the Hue mixing mode for the modification layer.

At the conclusion:

In product photography, you always want to change the background of the photograph. I always use the pen tool to change the background and then clean the image up by removing the defects with clone and stamp tool. Before I start colouring the image, I use the dodge and burn tool to clean the image further and get rid of extra colours using saturation.
