Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video The Color Range command, part of Photoshop CS6 Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.
With many images, we'll notice that there is a clear color difference between …certain areas of the image. For example, here the sky and the trees …have very different color properties. And in those types of situations, if we …want to apply an adjustment to just one area of the image, for example, just the …trees, we can create a selection based on color values within the image. …And that can be done with the Color Range selection. …To get started, I'll make sure that my image layer is actually active. …In this case, I only actually have a single layer, my background image layer.…
But if you had multiple layers, you would want to make sure that the layer you want …to base the selection on is currently active on the layers panel. …And you can do that just by clicking the thumbnail for that layer. …You can then choose Select Color Range from the menu in order to bring up the …Color Range dialog. I'll generally start with the Selection …Preview set to none, so that I can see the entire image. …
