Photoshop Friday - Adjusting Color of Digital Element

September 4, 2015

Thank you for joining me for another Photoshop Friday.  One of the biggest reasons I love creating digitally, is that you can change the look of your digital elements and papers to match mood or color scheme.  
Today, we are going to learn just how easy it is to adjust the color of a digital element, but the same can be applied to digital papers to.  
I love this vintage watch from the Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Patterns CD, but for my layout I wanted it to be a little more worn. 
Open the file(s) to be used.  Then click on Enhance, then Adjust Color and then Color Variations.  
Select the area of the image and click on to lighten or darken.  You can also increase or dark the colors.  With the Color Variation Box, you can make the adjustments and preview what it will look like. 
You can aslo adjust the saturation to achieve the desired look.  Click OK to apply.
If you would like to save the new adjusted color element, make sure to save it with a new file name.  Be careful not to save it over the existing file name.  

I hope you enjoyed another fun and easy Photoshop Friday.  Join me every Friday in September for more digital inspiration and tutorials.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
