Project 4: Changing the color of a pictured object

Photoshop Elements offers two methods of swapping one color for another. The first is to use the Color Replacement tool, as you did in the previous project to replace yellow with black in the cat’s eyes. You can use this technique to change any color to any other color—you’re not limited to black—simply by changing the Foreground Color.

The second method is the one you’ll use in this project. It’s faster and more automatic than using the Color Replacement tool, but it doesn’t work well for all types of images. This method is easiest when the color of the object you want to change is not found in other areas of the image. This color photograph of a bright yellow truck has very little yellow elsewhere in the image, making it a perfect opportunity for this approach.
