- The Color Range command is one of my favorite commands…in Photoshop.…It's a very powerful way to make selections.…Now, we've dabbled in this a little bit,…but there are a lot of hidden features…that I'd like to explore.…Let's open up two images here,…and you'll see the original image…and the corrected one.…I wanted to tone down some of the color…in the vegetation areas,…'cause it was just a little too dominant for the scene.…Well, this makes it very easy to do the fix.…Here we go.…
Let's start, and I'll invoke the Color Range command.…Select, Color Range.…Now, there are several options,…including the ability to click and sample colors,…but from the pop-up list here you'll notice many choices.…For example, I could select all of the greens,…and it will grab the greenish tones,…or all of the yellows.…And you see how it starts to pick up…a lot of the yellowish-green that's problematic…in this image and a little too dominant.…
Well, clicking OK makes a basic selection.…And I could easily feather that a little bit.…We'll just grow first.…
