How to change black/grey to other colors?

Look for Pixelmator tutorials, tips & tricks, and how-to’s here.

Is there anyway I can change the color of this shirt from dark grey to light yellow, as an example? The closest I got was by first using the dodge tool to lighten the grey and then adjust the color using colorize and color balance, but I lost almost all the definition of the texture, lines and edges.





Thank you

It's tricky because the details are so dark, but I'd probably use Colorize with settings like this: ImageAnd then brighten it a little using Brightness or Exposure.

Is that more or less the result you're looking for?

Hi, thanks for your reply and showing me how you did it. I was hoping after changing colors the new picture could maintain the same quality, but it doesn't seem possible. I thought since it's just a different color there gotta be an easy way to do it. It's always been difficult to change colors from a dark color or white.
