With Photoshop, it's easy to make realistic looking color changes and add pattern to an object. For this tutorial I'll be using Photoshop CS4 to show how it's done. You should be able to follow along with later versions of Photoshop as well. My object will be a long-sleeved tee shirt, which I will make multiple shirts from in various colors and patterns.
