Recoloring is changing the color of something
you are working on.
It's fun and makes your creation unique to you.
Just make sure to read any TOU
to see if recoloring is allowed before you start.
Some kit designers allow this,
some do not.
Same with tube artists, some do, some don't.
Read the TOU to make sure.

Using color or gradient overlays is probably
the easiest way of changing the color of things.
When using this effect,
play around with different colors and blend modes.
You will get different results when you use
color/gradient overlays using
soft light, screen, normal, pin light, etc...
Also adjusting the percentage will effect the outcome.
Color/gradient overlay is found in your tool bar.
Click Layer.
Then click Layer Style.
Choose either Color or Gradient Overlay.

Another way to recolor something is to work with
Hue/Saturation.
This is found in your tool bar under Image
then Adjustments.
Make sure before you start playing
that you check the box in the lower right corner
that says Preview.
This will allow you to see the changes as you make them.
Play around sliding the bars from left to right.
You will be able to see the color change
on your work space as you play.
If you find the color isn't changing,
you will need to check the box in the lower right corner
of the Hue/Saturation box
that says Colorize.

Play around with these recoloring techniques
until you get the color you want.
Have Fun!

♥Tribute to Rieka♥

To honor Rieka and all she has blessed me with, I will be leaving all my tuts that I have written with her kits on my blog. They are not coming down. Even though her kits are no longer available, the tuts I wrote using them are my tribute to her. Hopefully, they will inspire you the way Rieka inspired me. Love You, Rieka! You'll be forever in my heart.♥

Hi Ya'll! I'm Savage and I'd like to welcome you to Redneck Tuts. These are not your ordinary tuts, as they are geared toward those of us that don't have "working knowledge" of Photoshop or PSP. My tuts are all done in PS. They are designed to show you different techniques that you may not know. I hope you learn something that you can use in your creations in the future. Please, just have fun and put your own spin on these tuts. Be original and shine! Love Ya! ♥
