In Photoroom, you can easily change the color of an entire object by using the Adjust features. But did you know that you can also change the color of parts of an object? For that, you need to add your image to several Layers, and then use the Adjust features on each Layer.

This is really useful for designs such as product images, as you can change the color of parts of a product without having to take new photos.


On iPhone and iPad

To change the color of an object on iPhone or iPad:

(Video shows Photoroom on iPhone)

  1. On the Create page, select Your Content and then select the image you want to edit. Alternatively, you can create a new design.

  2. Select Insert.

  3. Add the same image to your design. The idea is that you have the same image on two different layers in your design.

  4. Position the object on the new layer so that it covers the object on the original layer.

  5. Select the new layer and then select Edit cutout.

  6. Use the Erase brush to remove any parts of the new layer that you want to stay the same color as the original layer. For example, if you want to change the color of a bottle top, erase everything except the bottle top.

    If you make a mistake, use the Restore brush to add the remove part back into the design.

  7. Select Done.

  8. Edit the new layer again and select the object.

  9. Select Adjust.

  10. Select Hue.

  11. Use the slider to change the color of the object.

  12. Select Done.

  13. [Optional] Edit the original layer and select Edit Cutout. Use the Erase brush tool to remove the part of the object that will be covered by the new layer. Select Done when you are finished.

  14. Select the Export icon in the top-right corner. Photoroom saves your design in your work area. You can also save to your gallery and share the design.

Tip: Sometimes objects on the original layer can contain reflections of colors that you changed on the new layer. To improve your image, try adjusting the brightness, shadows, and hue on the original layer too.
