The title says it all. I'm wondering if the background in the shot can be changed from the grayish white to blue? Thanks in advance for any help, tips or suggestions. Using Photoshop CC 2017

Are you just wanting to change the colour, or are you wanting to get rid of the branches as well?


Those that can, do. Those that can't whinge.

Keep the branches. Just change the background to a nice sky blue color.

I would try using SELECT & MASK. But it does mean that you will have to paint in all the individual branches.

This edit took me about a minute to do. Spending a lot more time on a full size image will yield far superior results.

Thanks for the quick reply John. I'll give that a try. I know just enough about Photoshop to be dangerous, so it may take me a while. Thanks again.

Thanks Peano. I’ll looked at this when I get back to my desktop and see if I can figure it out.

That looks good Peano ... could you please explain the steps in using the calculations to make the mask.

Lacogada,

Here’s a link to a tutorial on layer mask using calculations command. Haven’t tried it yet but it looks interesting.

In my opinion it would be much easier to replace the sky and the branches with a nice blue sky with clouds.
There is a good deal of fringing in the branches.
Also it would be quite simple to select the bird and the main branch with quick selection tool, playing a bit with feather

This was pretty easy, it took about a minute, maybe 2.

That's great work Teamspeed! I've just finished my first run using this method but had only partial success. Here's an example of what I've come up with. Not pretty.
