Hi! I am creating a website for a client and they want a feature that I'm not sure how to do. They create 3D printed prosthetics. I have a photo of a blank one and they want customers to be able to click on a swatch and see what it looks like on the product. Does anyone know a way to do this?
easiest way I can think of would be to create several images. Use the blank one as the model and duplicate it multiple times. For each new version, use the eye-dropper in photoshop to identify the colour of the swatch. then trace the prosthetic, or make a mask of some kind, and colour it in with the swatch colour.
once you have all the coloured versions you need, you could perhaps use a simple 'rollover' to swap between the different colours. rollover the colour swatch, and it triggers the next colour version of the prosthetic to appear....
something like that?
This + set up your mask as a smart object (likely a few smart objects) so you can create new versions easily without repeating all of the hard work. The initial setup will take longer but it should pay off.
Couldn't agree more Tim....excellent suggestion :)
