Can you make one doing the opposite? Turning a dress white? Please.

Hello seems like a good idea. I will let you know here because it's very simple, I've tried it once and worked perfectly.
Create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and bring the saturation to -100, duplicate this layer and convert the blending mode to screen, keep duplicating the screen layer until your dress turns white; this depends on its original colour. Remember to mask all layers to the layer of the dress.

I hope I helped! Let me know if you faced any problems concerning this.

Not all the people like to share..In fact,very few people like to share..
I personally don't understand how someone can get any pleasure of anything,if they don't share....

This helped me tremendously doing something I wanted to do as badly but never really found solution to - turning human skin black.

Thank you so much for this brief yet life saving tutorial <3

This is great! I am constantly changing the color of the model's dresses in my photomanips. I will have to figure out how to transcribe this to GIMP. Thank you for providing this tutorial!

I can usually translate PS to Gimp and when PS has a feature that Gimp doesn't (or vice versa) I can similate it pretty good!

How do you cut the dress to a single layer? Surely the selection tool or whatever would bake a mistake along the way, then i would be turning the skin to that colour too, and it'll probably be obvious its Photoshopped. This technique would probably be impossible to use on a photo, although a CG drawn image would already have everything separate in its own layers, so that would be a piece of pie :/

I usually cut with the pen tool..As for the image obvious as photoshopped i don't know if you've seen the result of this image, because it doesn't seem unnatural..Also If you're a photoshop pro you would know that anything cut can be fixed later on, it's not a big deal ;)

nice, but the thing is it won't be no tones unlike the original one!

Sure because this is black, the darkest color, but you can still play around with the curves :)
