Adobe Photoshop for Textile Design Part 3 Coloring Your Design
Today I’ll be showing you how to color a Textile Design using Adobe Photoshop both quickly and easily and yet with the accuracy you need to produce professional results.
In the first part of the lesson we’re going to start with the very basics. I’m going to show you how to change colors on a color reduced or indexed design using Photoshops color table. Then we’re going to dive into something really useful and a common task for most textile designers, matching the colors in a design to a pitch sheet. I’ll be showing you a very accurate way of doing this by using HSB color charts.
In the second part of this lesson I’m going to show you how to create colorings by using layers… so that the tones within a layer match a given color (such as a Pantone Color) accurately and dare I say effortlessly.
Before you take this class I strongly suggest that you take my class called “Adobe Photoshop for Textile Design Part 2 Color Reduction, where I will show you how to take a design that’s in RGB color mode and reduce it down to Indexed color. In short Taking my class on color reduction will prepare you for this class.
