How To Select and Change Colors In Photoshop
In this video tutorial, I will walk you through three methods that allow you to select and change colors in Photoshop.
When editing images, there will likely be a time that you’ll need to change the colors of an object in the image.
Maybe someone is wearing the color shirt, or you would like to see what your car would look like in a different color.
Whatever the reason, you’ll need to know how to change colors in Photoshop.
Luckily, this process is not very difficult as long as you have a good image to work with.

1. Color Replacement Tool
In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll learn all about the Color Replacement Tool (nested under the Brush Tool); the Color Replacement tool allows you to easily change the color of an object in a photo without a lot of trouble or hassle.
The Color Replacement Tool, however, is not the most professional tool that you can use in Photoshop to change colors since it is a destructive tool.
But it works well for simple projects, and it’s an easy tool to use and understand. It’s definitely worth giving it a try before moving on to more advanced and time-consuming methods if you are a beginner.
2. Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer
You can use the Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer to change the color of an object by first making a mask around the object. Then click on the colorize checkbox and adjust the hue.
3. Hue/Saturation (On-image Adjustment Tool)
You can select the On-image adjustment tool in the Properties panel and click a color in the image.
Drag left or right in the image to decrease or increase the color range saturation, including the pixel you clicked. Hold Ctrl (Mac: command) to change hue.
Drag The Slider To See Before & After
Jesus, Love the tutorials. I was working yesterday with the PhotoShop 15.5 using Text and went to my Blending Options and noticed the new and improved Stroke was not there. Did they forget this or did they hide it somewhere else and my old eyes can’t spot it.
Do you mean Layer Styles? Blending Options don’t have strokes.
But the Strokes on Layer Styles are still there. If you don’t see them, click on the “FX” icon on the bottom left of the window and select Reset To Default List.
I hope this helps!
Thanks, Jesus, I found the fx before I saw the comments. As for Blending Options we are both right. Right click the layer and at the top the first item is Blending Options and when you select it the Dialogue box says Layer Styles but once again inside the box is Blending Options. Thanks again for taking the time to answer this personally.
That was a very kool tutorial,Thank You
