Out of time? Use Match Color for a quick day to night conversion

One way to quickly change the time of day in your image is with a quick color shift with the Match Color command. The Match Color command changes the colors in your source image to match the colors of another open image or a selection of the image. To start off, you’ll need two images: the target image you want to transform and the source image you want to pull colors from. To follow along with our example, download the file and extract the files cliffs.psd and city.psd. (Images provided by PhotoSpin. Some images modified for educational purposes.)


To transform day to night with Match Color:

1.       Open cliffs.psd, which will be our target image, and city.psd, which will be our source image, as illustrated in Figure A.
