How to Use Photoshop to See What Your House Looks Like Renovated
You can use a program like Photoshop to try out different combinations for your house. I wanted to see how a specific color would look and how it would look covering up the bricks. (I feel like the bricks give it an old house look and I want it to look more updated.)
My son held a sample up to the house. (Please note that my camera distorted the color a bit. It was a cloudy day.)
I used the clone stamp in Photoshop to paint the siding on the house where I wanted to side it. Eventually, once I added large swathes of siding on the house, I copied and pasted bigger pieces. I added the cornices above the upper windows from another photo I had of another house. I also painted the foundation a different color using the paint tools.
It’s not a perfect representation, but in an hour, I was able to come up with this photo to get a general idea of how the house will look covering the bricks and using this color siding.
