    Yeah so in an attempt to save madness money and insanity I'm trying to show how different colours work on this woodwork. However whilst I can find the replace colourcommand it seems to only do a good job showing me what green varnish would look like. Trying to show a darker or lighter brown or cream or such seems beyond the hue's capacity to alter.

    So anyone here able to have a bash at it or got a better method to change the colour of something?

    Anyone able to shed some light on this? I feel if I can't get something to show certain people in this household are going to take matters into their own (daft) hand with a paintbrush!

    I've never done this by altering a photo, but what I usually do is find a scrap of similar wood and try the darker stain on it.

    Me too, but for fun, here is a stab at the concept (I think):

    Thanks guys - sadly changing the shade isn't too tricky ,its more trying to show it as white or another cream colour that seems to be tricky. Or even trying to make it a different colour of brown (shade is one thing but different brown colour tricker).
