    My boss asked me to change the color of these chairs red. Can anyone help me out? I'm still at work and do not have photoshop here, otherwise i'd do it myself.

    Just curious, but if you are working in a place that requires you to do photoshop-related stuff, why dont you have it?

    Unfortunately, no. My boss asked me if I was good with touching up photos and such. I use photoshop all the time, but I am at work.

    Can anyone help?

    I don't know photoshop at all, so out of curiosity, was that a 10 second job, or a 10 minute job?

    my guess is that he used a quick mask and then overlayed it with a color... but im not too sure, i'm interested to know your technique as well =]

    Yeah, I think that's about a 2-minute job at the most.

    5-minute job (I'll send you the bill).

    1. Duplicate the layer, and apply a very rough layer mask with the lasso tool.
    2. Add a hue/saturation adjustment layer. Click 'Colorize' and adjust the settings to however you want (0, 47,+7 in this case).
    3. Brush out anything you don't want using a black brush at 95% hardness and at whichever size fits.

    The last part is where the time lies. Everything else can be done in under a minute.

    Thank you very much for doing this.

    I thought it would be easier to do though, unless i'm missing something... When i go to the lasso tool it basically takes for ever, and I have to be so careful. Is there an easier way of selected just the chairs?

    polygon lasso would be easy with all the straight edges
