Use Global Color

Global color lets you create a document in which you can easily change colors at once, throughout all objects. Start by creating a new swatch in the Swatches palette (Window>Swatches) by using the palette’s flyout menu and choosing (strangely enough) New Swatch. Click on the Global checkbox. Use this color to fill and/or stroke images, using different percentages of the color (just make sure you have the color selected and then adjust the Tint percentage slider in the Color palette). You can also create a gradient using different percentages of the global color by dragging the swatch to the gradient ramp in the Gradient palette. Later, if you need to change all objects to a different color, you can either edit the global color by double-clicking it in the Swatches palette, or create a new global color swatch and press-and-hold the Option key (PC: Alt key) as you drag it over the original global color swatch. (Before replacing the global color, make a duplicate of the swatch by dragging it onto the New Swatch icon in the Swatches palette.)
