I have a black object in a layer all by itself that I'm trying trying to use as a mask, to cut out a white object the same size.

object I'm trying to turn white

I tried drawing an white rectangle on a new layer, placed it on top of the black item layer, selected "Create Clipping Mask", and nothing happened.

What's the best way to do achieve this goal? I tried selecting the image by color, and using the brush tool to paint it white, but the results are unprofessional.

If you just want the same object of different color then you can use blending option


  1. Select your layer and Double click on it(or Right Click > Blending Options)
  2. From The layer style dialog box check Color Overlay and select your color

That's it you dont need to do any thing else
