In the passport image, using Photoshop, I want to change the suit color to black, remove the shirt pattern and change the shirt color to white but I want to keep the shadows. I tried to change the suit's color by creating a new layer and making its blending mode to Multiply with new color but got something dark greenish, could not get pure black. But I have no idea how I can remove the shirt's pattern and change the color to white. I could simply use an eraser but the shadows will be gone too obviously.

image to be edited

  • I'd rather take a photo with a white shirt and paste it in. I'm not sure it will be possible to remove the shirt's texture, the pattern blends in too much with the shadows.

Why don't you try to desaturate the image? And then change the levels
