How to Change the Colors of Objects in Your Photos

Before and After Step-by-Step Edit: How to Edit Portraits

The MCP Show and Tell Site is a place for you to share your images edited with MCP products (our Photoshop actionsLightroom presetstextures and more).  We’ve always shared before and after Blueprints on our main blog, but now, we will sometimes share some favorites from Show and Tell to give these photographers even more exposure.  If you haven’t checked out Show and Tell yet, what are you waiting for?  You’ll learn how other photographers are using our products and see what they can do for your work.  And once you are ready, you can show off your own editing skills using MCP goodies.  You might even make new friends or gain a customer…. since you get to add your website address right on the page. Bonus!

dress color switch before and after


How this was edited:

Manual Edits:

  • Manual adjustments in curves

Newborn Necessities:

  • Paint on Grey Skin
  • Eyes Wide Open/Brightener


  • Manual color switcher on dress – Blue to Pink – using this Photoshop action, you can quickly change the color of a solid object in your images (it will retain the same luminosity).  Here is a VIDEO that shows you how we changed a wall color.  The same technique is used (go to about 4 1/2 minutes into the video — till you see a family photo against a blue wall) and watch from there.
  • Brilliant Base
  • Gem Polish
  • Haze Reducer on her
  • Sunbeam
  • Classic Vignette (twice)
  • Simple Cream brushed off her
  • Passionate Red brushed off her
  • Gem Polish on eyes
  • Webify
