I've got a question for all you photomanippers. I'm working on a Supergirl piece and I need to change the model's hair color from brown to blonde and I'm not sure how the best way to do it is. Any tips? Thanks, DP.

We could help you better if you show us the hair, sir.

Sure, Here is the base pic that I'm using, now how do I make her hair blonde?

Your best bet is to use the original hair as a guide and to paint the blond hair from scratch. Any other techniques will come out looking poorly.

(Low voice on) I see pain in your future (low voice off)

Your first problem is the image resolution you?re working on. It?s very small. But that?s another story?

It?s too dark, sir! God knows I tried! Since the hair at our right lost any detail therefore the light can?t reach it, it?s useless, in my opinion, fight with it.


So, the only hope remains in a radical hair implant. I took two different blond models, copied their hair, used Liquify (an Adobe Photoshop tool) to distort their shapes (they still need corrections) and fixed some lightning problems.



In any case, you?ll have to struggle, sir. I?m really sorry. There is no easy way here.

I agree with Android, if this was my project, I would go looking for another base image of a blonde with hair that would match and just clone it. Anything else is just going to lose in translation.

Well, I appreciate all your help guys, and I will take it all into consideration. I've been asking around lots of places and I've gotten many great suggestions, so I'm going to try some various things and I'm sure something is bound to work.

I haven't had the time to do anything yet, and I'll be going on vacation for a week starting Friday of this week, so I'll be away from the computer for a while. If I can do some work on it sometime before I go I will, but most likely it will have to wait until I come back and then I will let you know what I did to get it to work. Thanks again.
