There are a couple of adjustments in Photoshop that don't technically qualify…as selection methods, but that allow you to isolate colors and change their appearance.…One of those adjustments is the replace color adjustment.…This is one of the few adjustments that you cannot apply as an…editable adjustment layer.…Because I'm going to apply this adjustment as a direct adjustment on an image…layer, I'll first duplicate the image layer.…I'll go to the single layer in this file, I'll right-click, and I'll choose…Duplicate layer and click OK.…
With the copy layer selected in the Layers panel, I'll go over to the Image menu.…I'll choose Adjustments and Replace Color.…If you've watched the movie on the Color Range Selection command, you'll…recognize some of the controls in this dialog box, the controls here in…the Selection area.…These are very similar to the Color Range Selection controls.…I'll use these controls to isolate part of the image, based on its color.…I'd like to change the color of the table and chairs.…
