Create your own Nikes
Introduction: In this tutorial I will teach you how to change the color or your shoes. Very simple, you can design you own shoes using Photoshop, submit it to a designer and have them create the shoes for you. 🙂 that would be so great.
Find a good picture of a shoes you like, you can click on the original version and copy the Nike shoes I used. copy it and paste it into PhotoShop. Make sure the image is sitting separate from the background.
With the image pasted into Photoshop, press CTRL+ALT+0 to view the actual pixel. Press CTRL+J to duplicate the layer. Now we can start editing it. First lets edit the Nike check, click on the Zoom tool , zoom into the check so you can see it more clearly, click on the zoom tool and drag it around the Nike Check and it will zoom into that area. As show below.
At this point your you should be looking at the zoomed Nike Check in your Photoshop work area. Click on the Lasso Tool and draw around the Nike check. Click and hold to draw around the check. Your lines don’t have to be perfect when you zoom out of the image if will look fine. If you did everything right your image should look like the image shown below.
with part of your image selected, click CTRL+U or Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and the window below should come up. Click on Colorize and adjust the setting to what ever color you like. I found it hard to use white, all the details in the image disappeared when I used it.
Play around with the Hue, Saturation and Lightness, if you did everything right you should have something like I have below.
That’s basically it, after you used the Lasso Tool to draw around a part of the sneaker, you can use the contact and extend options to get a more detailed control over your selection. Click Select > modify to get these setting.
Just repeat steps 2 – 3 to color in the other parts of the sneaker.
