Default I need some guidence

I'm working with a new camer, so i'm not sure what is causing this problem. Why is the yellow beads in this set so birght? In real life they are a much softer yellow. I do have photo shop so is there a setting that I can change that wouldn't chage the color of the other beads

Have never used a "camer" before so perhaps that is your issue!!!

Would start with using a gray card and using the eye dropper to archive a neutral gray in the image. Then using levels and set the sliders for optimum results.

And one could also use hue/saturation to decease the saturation on the yellow.

There are a lot of help on using PhotoShop on the net, plus an excellent array of books on Amazon.

If you wanna know what I did...

1. Use the magic wand tool to select all the yellow parts. Hold down shift as you click so you can select all the yellow parts instead of one at a time

2. make a new layer on top of the original picture

3. Fill in the selections with color #fad0d0

4. set the new layer to hard light and drag the opacity slider down to 35%

LOL it's really not a problem, if you want I can make a basic 'photoshop for dummies' tutorial for you! Won't take me that long, and if you like, it might really help you out.
