Nice job, Radomir! One of our main goals on this forum is teaching people how to use PS. So, even if this person just wants someone to do the work for him and doesn't care how it was accomplished, others, reading the thread at a future date might very well be interested in the method you used.

You don't have to write up a full, step-by-step tutorial, but it would be nice if you could at least give a general idea of how you did it, e.g., "I used curves", "I used a gold colored layer in 'color' layer blending mode", "I used a gold colored photo filter", etc.

Thanks,

Tom M

The help, answers, and solutions provided in any given thread not only benefit the original poster, but many visiting guests and members that may be viewing or searching for this particular issue in the future.

Simply providing the finished image without explanation is somewhat counterproductive to our forums goals. I realize that this may not be the goals for everyone.

I understood your "good" argument and I can assure you that I do not now nor did I have an "issue" with it. My post was meant in jest. I was under the impression that you understood this based on your first comment, which I found rather funny.

Then you edited your comment and showed your true colors. I now realize what I'm dealing with so carry on.

arko I'm not sure if this is what you looking for but this is how I did it.

Darker

I first sampled the color from the A image.....

I then created a Solid Color Fill adjustment layer and used the sampled color as the fill.

I set the layer blending mode to COLOR.

I then placed a Curves adjustment layer above the color fill layer.

Here are the Curve settings for the darker version.

This is just one way. There are, of course, many different ways to do this and the colors can be tweaked some more for accuracy.

Good luck.
