The Campus is the perfect place to learn more about photo editing, various techniques, or PSP in general.
This challenge will give you an opportunity to practice some of those techniques or use some tools.
This month’s Tut/Tech Challenge is to colorize lace that is otherwise greyscaled (if you already have images of colored lace, you can turn it to greyscale with the Colorize command and reducing the saturation to 0).
Tell us what technique you used and try to incorporate that new lace in a completed project.May 20, 2019 at 1:06 pm #29079Dee347Participant
I used the technique to color one of the crochet tubes to match a paper I created with the Plaid 3 script. After coloring the crochet tube, I created a frame using the Mitered Corners script. Added a baby photo and clip art from Freepik.com.May 21, 2019 at 9:53 am #29121
Dee, this layout is lovely! The pastel colors are so nice and the lace frame came out great. Good job!May 21, 2019 at 11:13 pm #29169
Thanks, Cassel for your tips on coloring white lace. This is my result from your first email (adjust brightness/contrast). I didn’t use adjust hue/saturation/colorize but instead, I used adjust color/manual color correction which is my favorite way to change color. Thanks for takin a peek.May 21, 2019 at 11:13 pm #29171
Here is my result for coloring white lace using Cassel’s lock transparency technique … very effective for bright lace or any brightness really depending on the blend mode you use. Thanks again Cassel.May 21, 2019 at 11:20 pm #29173
A lovely and cute scrapbook page Dee, very sweet indeed, well done.May 22, 2019 at 7:06 am #29184
Dee, that is a beautiful layout.
Annie, I love your lace.

This was fun! My layers are as follows:
Adjust: Hue & Saturation: Colorize
Adjust: Hue & Saturation: Hue/Saturation/Lightness
Lock, Paint, Color Blend
Lock, Paint Gradient, Color Blend
Adjust: Color: Manual Color Correction
Annie, I found the Manual Color Correction and added it to my commands. Thanks for introducing it to me. I think my colorizing is going to be a lot easier now.

Annie and Michele, great examples of colorizing, and it is amazing how many options there are.
I also have to try the color correction. I think I only did once after watching Carole’s webinar… I forgot the name but it had something to do with winter… I think she used it changing the color of snow… It was very interesting.
There are so many techniques to try and practice!! 🙂May 22, 2019 at 8:38 pm #29211
Michele, your lace is amazing … gorgeous colors. So glad you found the manual color correction, I hope you have some fun with it. <3May 23, 2019 at 3:37 am #29231
Thanks, Annie. I definitely had fun.
Thank you, Cristina. In order to find the Manual Color Correction, right click on your toolbars, choose Customize: Commands: then Unused Commands or All Commands. There are so many unused commands that it would take me years to try them all out.

Thanks for the lovely comments and for sharing your techniques for coloring. I am fairly new to PSP and have learned so much from these challenges.May 23, 2019 at 1:14 pm #29238
Hi Michele, thanks for letting me know where to find the Manual Color Correction! <3 …I really have to give it a try when I practice the colorize technique… There are so many things I want to practice! 🙂
