This week, Deke takes a Photoshop journey in to the eye-bending world of op art, creating a Bridget Riley-inspired twist and bulge of checkerboard contortion.
Today I kick off Deke's Techniques: The Challenge with a new technique based on five from the past. Along the way, I'll transform a crap car into an awesome one!

This week I show you how to change the color of a car (or any other object for that matter). Better yet, I show you how to do it the right way, so the results look impeccable.
The Levels command, and its cohort the histogram, let you adjust luminance levels on a channel-by-channel basis. The upshot is that you can increase contrast, correct for color cast, and make a bad image good.
In the digital age, we shoot linear images that are converted to full-color photographs. Which is a good thing, because it means we can distill the perfect black-and-white shot in Photoshop, one range of colors at a time.
