Hi there

So basically ive got some textures, of paint, and then walls and various textures but i want to change their colours but so they are actually only 1 tone....like 1 colour. so no tonal variations at all....as though it were going to be screenprinted or something.

i use gradient map generally as it has a lot to play with, however generally there is always a bit of tone left over...any tips on how best to achieve this would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Dan

To get sections of images to adopt one colour, create a path or mask for the relevant part of the image.

Create a new layer and fill it with the colour you want, use your path or mask to select the part of image you want to be coloured and delete/mask the rest.

Finally (and the clever bit) go to the blending modes on your layers palette and change it from 'normal' to 'colour' and that should be the trick.

You can do this with any colour, including Pantone references.

Simply desaturate before adding gradient Map

You can also change Gradient Maps blend mode
