    Greetings, I have taken 2 pictures of the exact same table. They both have a cherry finish. BUT they look nothing alike. The first table in the picture is correct, but the second does not even resemble the color. The guy I did the photos for wants them to be the same color. The tables have already been picked up and taken to the owner. I have gimp software. How can I make the second table the same color as the first?

    I'm not 100% if this is what your looking for but using cs3 I took both pictures and merged them together and changed the first tabled Ocpaticy to about 50% and just used the magnetic Lasso tool to cut around the table. Copy and pasted it and put it backed to 100%

    Thanks for trying but, not exactly what I need. I really just need to change the lighting/color in the original. I am not very good with gimp.

    An old post, but if it helps...opened your image up in Gimp. Colors>Hue-Saturation>Select "red"> jack "lightness" and tweak "saturation". A more effective job could be done using layers, but this works in a down and dirty way.

    Copy the table top that is the right color and paste it over the one with the wrong color.

    Very good solution.

    As long as the grain direction doesn't matter :)

    Cheers, Don
