Back before I could afford a Mac I used a PC (when Windows XP ruled the earth). At that time I couldn't afford Photoshop either. So I had a WinXP box with Irfanview installed - and I thought that was pretty cool.
Now I have a Mac and PhotoShop but I can't figure out how to do one of the things Irfanview did so easily - swap colors / channels:
What it Does
Using those menu items you could take an image like this one:
and make it look like this:
or like this:
- How can I do something similar in Photoshop? It seems like it might be really complicated.
- What if I wanted to make that button another color besides one of the primary channel swaps - like a maroon or aqua - what is the best way to do that in Photoshop?
- Shouldn't it be especially easy if the image has a (kind of) grayscale background?
ps: Irfanview does not run on Mac without WineBottler or something like that which I don't really want to run.
