As you already know, you can use the Selective Color feature in PrintingPress Extreme 6.0 to recolor just part of an image with the paint bucket cursor. But did you know that you can modify those changes after clicking with the paint bucket? We’re going to tell you how. First, we start with the unmodified champagne glasses image.
As you learned in our Extreme Tip on the Selective Color feature, click on an image to select it and then click on the Selective Color button to begin to adjust the color for the image. Click on the Choose Selective Color button to choose the color that you would like to use and then click on the Apply Selective Color button to get the paint bucket cursor and click on your image to apply the color to your image.
Below you can see that we have modified the champagne glass with the “3” and changed it to brown.
But what if you don’t like the color now that it’s been applied to the image once you see it next to the other colors? Click on the Modify Previous Fill button and then click on the Choose Selective Color button to apply a new color to the same part of the image that you just changed. This saves you the time of repeatedly choosing Undo and then applying a new color to the image. You can continue to change the color (or other selective recolor settings) and as long as the Modify Previous Fill button is still selected it will continue to modify the previous fill. Click the Modify Previous Fill button again to stop modifying the previous fill.
Below you can see the resulting image where we adjusted the brown to a more neutral color.
