    substitute one color for another C1Pro6

    Hello all,

    In a recent shoot, the model is sitting on an exercise ball, against a white background, The ball is green and she wants that changed to red.

    C1Pro6 selects the entire range of the green ball beautifully, but I can't see how to change the selected color to red. I have Aperture, and CS Ps4 as well, if these are easier to use.

    TIA, KL

    Using the Color Editor > Advanced Tab
    With the Pick Color Correction Tool (The only tool available in that Tab), click in the color you would like to change - Then use the Hue rotation. You will not be able to rotate through the entire spectrum so rotate to the max in one direction if you do not achieve your desired color, then repeat the process; click in the area with the Pick Color Correction Tool again then rotate some more. There are ways to refine your selection before you rotate and saturation and lightness help as you change the hue to help you get to your desired color.

    Keep the smoothness slider to maximum (30) to help prevent banding/artifacts from these large changes.

    This sort of dramatic color change will work in C1, but you may find in many situation this dramatic is best left to Photoshop.
