How To Change The Color of PNG's In Photoshop

Changing the color of images in Photoshop so easy, you can do it in a minute. This little handy trick can save you a lot of time as there is no need to draw that same shape again when you need it in another color (or to pay for another download). I use this trick a lot in my clip art and other digital art when working with hand drawn images and not with vectors. In an ideal world every digital image would be a vector as it is much easier to work with, but when you’re working with hand-drawn images the vector files are usually non-existent. Read on for a step by step tutorial on how to Change The Color of PNG’s In Photoshop.

Here is how to change the color of your PNG’s in Photoshop using the Hue / Saturation method.

2. If you have multiple layers in your file then select the layer you want to change the color of. Highlight that layer. For simplicity, I am using a file with a single layer. In your Layers Panel, click on the black and white circle to see image adjustment options. Choose the Hue /Saturation option.

3. This will create a Hue / Saturation layer and a properties box for the Hue / Saturation will appear. Move the Hue & Saturation sliders until you get the desired color. NOTE: I moved the Hue slider to the left to get a blue background instead of pink one.
