Changing photo colors
I guess this is where to post this. I hope.
OK, the Wizard I designed for my figure banks is now scheduled for my planned walking staff. Several issues tho. Apparently I printed the original on a different printer, because it doesn't print out the same size. An irritation, but resolvable with some work. Photo one.
The first big issue is deleting the background of the photo, so I can print it out on paper that will essentially vanish when glued to wood. I learned how to white the background out, but can't get the white smooth along the outline of the Wizard. Photo two. However, think I have this one solved by photographing the original Wizard against a white background. Photo three.
Now the biggie. I am wanting to change the color of the robes, beard, and moustache. Learned how, but not how to fill the space nicely. Photo four. Also, have changes made to the face, so will have nine different face available. So, going to have to print out nine Wizards, glue them to plywood, rout them out. Then be able to change colors, nicely, and neatly.
I understand Photoshop will do what I want, but at $30 a month with something I've never used, that will be a last choice for me.
Is there anyway I can do what I want for free? Yes, I know I can fill in the spaces, but when I do that it never comes out well.
Very strange, photos Three and Four got swapped, and I did not post them in that order. The original Woody Woodpecker background was white. Oh, for Pete's sake, Somehow all the pictures but the first are all mixed up. Bah. Humbug. Just sort it out, I'm not going to even try to correct them.
