Photoshop 101 - Colorizing Wallpaper

Have you liked a certain digital wallpaper but wished it was in a different color? Well there is a really simple way to fix that and get the color you want.

1. Open the photo/wallpaper of choice (Ctrl + O)

2. Copy your background (Ctrl + J) so that you keep the original file as is.

3. Go to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation

4. Once that's done, a dialog box will pop up. In the bottom corner, click Colorize.
This will automatically choose a color. Move the sliders in different directions to get the color of your choice.

5. If you want it to be a greyscale, slide the Saturation all the way to the left which completely gets rid of the color.

6. Once done, click OK. And save your document in the format you wish.

See super simple. But if you want some different variations and would like to download the set I put together click HERE!
