Using the Replace Color Adjustment

Photoshop's Replace Color command lets you create a selection, based on image color, and replace that color selection with any other color. The Replace Color adjustment accomplishes this by giving you access to the three items that control color: Hue, Saturation, and Brightness. Hue gives you the ability to change the images physical color, Saturation controls the amount of color, and Brightness determines how bright the color is, based on its Hue and Saturation.

Use the Replace Color Adjustment

Open a color document.

Click the Image menu, point to Adjustments, and then click Replace Color.

Click on the active document using the Selection eyedroppers to select, add, or subtract colors.

Click the Color box to select a specific color for the selection.

Drag the Fuzziness slider to increase or decrease the sensitivity of the eyedropper tools.

Click the Selection or Image option to toggle between a view of the selection mask and the active image (white areas of the mask represent selection).

Drag the Hue, Saturation, and Lightness sliders to change the selected areas.

Select the Preview check box to view the changes in the active document.
