In this tutorial you will learn how to perform colour correction in Photoshop using the Hue/Saturation adjustments settings and the Quick mask tool. I will be correcting the man’s t-shirt colour in this tutorial.
Colour correction in Photoshop
Open an image in Photoshop and the reset the colour palette by pressing the ‘D’ key on the keyboard.
Select the Brush tool with an appropriate size and then enter the quick mask mode by selecting the Q key. Then paint over the areas of the image where you don’t want to change the colour. Since, I only want to change the t-shirt colour this would be most of the image like below.
Exit out of the Quick mask mode by selecting the Q key, and you should see the area around the t-shirt selected.
Select Image > Adjustment > Hue/Saturation and then drag the sliders to your liking. I have added the following settings: Hue = 50, Saturation = 69 and Lightness = -18. Make sure you select the saturation checkbox.
You should now be able to perform colour correction in Photoshop.
