In this video, you will learn how to match a color

onto any object in Photoshop.

To follow along, you can download the sample file

from the Adobe page for this tutorial.

Our working document contains two layers:

A photo of a room and a yellow circle,

which is the color that we're going to reference for the color match.

The goal of this tutorial is to apply this yellow color to the couch.

Before we get into that,

we need to understand an essential concept

about how color works inside that HSB color system.

If you double click on the foreground color,

the Color Picker will come up

and you will be able to select any color that you want.

When you drag over the color gradient or the Hue slider,

you'll notice that the values in the HSB boxes change

depending on the color that you select.

HSB stands for Hue, Saturation and Brightness

which are the three color components that we need to understand

to complete this advanced color matching technique.

Hue is what color something is.
