    Distressing or ageing an object - Advice needed please

    Hi, I need to try and "age" this object as per attached photo. I'm using CS5 by the way. At present as you can see it looks like it's just off the shelf but I want to incorporate in a background of a building site and therefore, for realism want it to look like it's dusty, been used just a bit...

    Creating a Shadow

    Colour Replacement Tool

    From what I've experienced over the last couple of days, this tool doesn't work in the same way that I, in my naivity, thought it did. Perhaps someone can explain, briefly, why it doesn't do what I thought it said on the can. I've tried trawling Google but haven't found an answer yet. So I had...

    Creating a Shadow

    Tkx Dv8, I'll go away and try that. It's just that when I tried filling in with black etc I finished up with a shadow that was grey and not the brown colour that the "real shadow" has.
