Color Selection in Photoshop

There are times when (due various reasons) you need to change a certain color in a picture. In Photoshop, many users just mask the color portion of the image to change, then they make a new color layer and change the blending mode of that layer hoping that some of those modes works properly. But there is a much more easy and effective way to make it, without making any selection or changing layer blending modes. By using a simple Hue/Saturation adjustment layer, you can select and change any color you want quick and easy.

Step 1

Open your image in Photoshop.

Step 2

Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation. Name this layer as “Colors” and click OK.

Step 3

In the Hue/Saturation Properties Panel, click on the hand slider icon.

Step 4

Click on the image color you want to change.

Step 5

In the Hue/Saturation Panel, set the Hue to 150 and increase the Saturation to around 70.

Step 6

If only the colors you want to change are selected, skip to the step 8 of this tutorial. If more colors are selected besides the ones you want, drag the sliders to reduce the color range until only the colors you want are selected.

Step 7

When you finish adjusting the range, set the Hue and the Saturation back to 0.

Step 8

In the Hue/Saturation Properties Panel, switch to the Master Channel.

Step 9

Now simply adjust the Hue, Saturation and Lightness to your liking.
