So next Spring I want to have my house repainted. Just the dark-shit-brown color. I have already repainted half of the beige trim on my home and want to keep that color. Between the brick/beige I think only a super light gray or off-white would work.

My process was this:
  • Create duplicate layer.
  • Select part of the house I want to repaint.
  • Create a mask
  • Create a new layer that is 100% filled with the color that I want to see on my home.
  • Clip that mask to the layer beneath.
  • Use color blend mode to preserve detail.
  • Home looks way too dark.....

Orig. Picture of Home:



Below you can see the color I choose for my overlay. Its not 100% white, but a slight off white. Now my home is dark grey, wtf.



Any help would be appreciated!

Yikes, looks like I'll just buy a quart and paint the rear of my garage as a test.
