Most Photoshop CS gurus would likely already know this, but I didn't and thought there could be others like me :)

Match Color

Wow, i never knew that.
Quite eager to try it out now.

It is neat little tricks like these that make me think I really should save for Photoshop CS, rather than making do with Elements 4. Thanks for posting - I shall bookmark for future reerence.

That is really cool.

Ah, that's one of the new features which came with (I think) PS CS ... I hadn't seen it before. Very interesting ....

I didn't know about this either until I saw it posted somewhere else a few days ago. So much fun!

Sounds like this would save time wouldn't it? Mmmm, think I will put down Photoshop on the Mother's Day list. :-) (I wish!)

i use that feature from time to time. it also comes in handy if you're making a series of photos and you want them all to match. it works very well! thanks for pointing it out ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

I've tried this technique many times and while the results are fun to play with, I always wind up with a huge amount of noise in my images from using the Match Color option. Just wanted to mention it for anyone who thinks this will work for publication quality images.

Possibly creating a 2nd layer and using this technique, using noise reduction and then blending it with the original might give you less noise.

here is a nice site for good images

Where is this legal in DPC?

Is it legal in Basic or Advanced editing?

Very very cool though and fun to play with.

I tried the approach and it worked very well...how does it know, the color to pick and adjust with?

Might be ok with the Advanced ruleset since it's only dealing with colour shifts, but I don't think it would be legal in Basic as you cannot use this function as an adjustment layer.

Can SC confirm one way or the other?

I just used this technique with a brightly colored image I had on hand and here are the results. So you don't really need an Old Master, just some interesting colors. Here is an approximation of the colors I used on the images below - and yes, squares of color work very well.

(I can't show you the image I started out with 'cause it may show up in competition.

And Thank You to the original poster who reminded me of this fascinating feature.

Neither is Shadow/Highlight, and it's legal in basic.

Hmmm, I don't know why that first thumb didn't print. the number's right.
But then, you get the idea.


When I try to go to that image (220909) directly, I get an error saying the image has been hidden by the photographer. Maybe it's in their Workshop?
