    How to change white to black

    How can you change a white shirt to a black shirt in Photoshop? Do you use hue/saturation?

    This is a bit of a sticky problem, which I admit I haven't come across before. If I were you though, I'd try to select the parts of the shirt you want to change then hit ctrl+j to make it it's own layer. Image->adjustments->black&white and put all the sliders at black. If that isn't dark enough, follow it up with image->adjustments->brightness/contrast and pull the brightness slider down until it works (repeat this step as necessary).

    this'll probably require some tweaking, but it should at least get you close.

    I thought about that mfox, but if there are any shadows on the shirt (as there very likely will be) inverting the color might throw things off.

    edit: it could do something like this:

    Desaturate, then follow screenshot (fiddle with the settings):




    Tons of other ways to do this with different results, but I have not much time show them.
