In this tutorial, we will simulate different colors of bracelets made from measuring leather samples.
The first step is to create a color chart from the measurements of leather samples.
You will find in the chapter "Color table" all the procedure to create a color chart from the material sample measurement.
Once the leather measurements have been made, export the color chart in the format corresponding to the software you are going to use. In our example, we will export it in the .ase format which is compatible with Adobe Photoshop.
Display the swatch in Window tab> Swatches Then click in the menu at the top right.
Then select "Load a color chart"
Select the color chart in .ase format generated by Coraye.
Ouvrez l'image de la montre puis convertissez la dans le mode Lab Image > Mode > Lab
Using the "Quick Selection" tool to select the two parts of the bracelet.
When you have made the selection of the bracelet, right click and select "Layer by Copy" A new layer is then added to the list of layers.
Deselect the background layer and then select the new layer. In the "Selection" menu, click on "Select all".
Then with the "Quick Selection" tool, re-select the two parts of the bracelet.
Re-select the background
Select the Brush tool, then choose a color from the swatch. Choose a relatively large brush size and color the bracelets.
In the "Layer" tab in the "Define the blend mode for the layer" area ...
... Select "Color"
The bracelet will regain its texture associated with the color of the color chart
To modify and associate a new color, you just need to use the brush tool and use another color from the swatch.
