How to Change Colors of a Company Logo without Using Pen Tool?
I have a couple of company logos that I want to change to color white (to be placed in a black background). This logo is pretty simple enough to just use the pen tool. However, I have some logos that are complex as this one below:
What's the best way of changing these colors with minimal pain? Other solutions that I found is to Recolor with Preset in the Edit action, but that option is greyed out and cannot be used. Please help me out! The struggle is real.
Because these are raster images your best bet is to either:
1) Re-create the image to easily change the colors.
2) Bring the images into a photo editor program and change the hue/saturation. There are also plenty of other color changing methods in Photoshop if that is the program you plan to be using.
- Color Balance
- Selective Color
If you just want to change the text color (If you do not have the original font) in illustrator that would be much easier. Just go to Object -> Live Trace -> Make. This would work entirely for the first image (font & graphic, however using the pen tool will most likely give better results). The second image you would need the text part of the image as its own separate file.
