  1. thankyou for your help, i was muddeling through it myself but now i have it better figured out!! thankyou keep posting!!

  2. great video man!!….i been using the program black magic for this kinda stuff but i do like how on photoshop has more color options. On black magic though there is this special eraser that when u go over things with it, it changes the spots back to how they originally looked on the photo….so like if i color replaced something and it went out of the lines a bit (B&W photo) i could use this eraser to fix the spots i messed up on for example. Does photoshop have anything similar to this? Thanks

  3. I’ve always wanted to use this tool but I every time I did, I never got the colour I wanted, ifI used black, it would come out grey, red would come out pink, is there any settings I should be aware of when using this tool or is it to do with the file type??

  4. Hey DougGirard, thanks for your comment. Getting the exact color can be tricky, it all depends on what color your picture is. You can adjust more using the hue and saturation, this will allow you home in on the color you want to use. Let me know how you get on


  5. When I use this tool, sometimes the color doesn’t seem to transfer as I would expect. Often the final color seems to be a lot lighter than the color I expected. Any idea what is going on or how to avoid this problem?

  6. @1stoptutorials he is a very funny comedian, and my god you sound like him haha, btw he has a nice voice x

  7. Hey coltscomputers, are you using it on the same image or a different one, sometimes the effect that worked on one does not work on another because of different colors. Another technique would be to paint over the selection with the brush tool on a new layer and then change the blending mode of that layer to something like overlay. Let me know how you get on


  8. If I using the tool on a dark brown color it replaces it the way I want it. If I use it over a light brown color the resulting color if the very light “hazy” color. How do I get it where the light brown is replaced the same way the dark brown is?

  9. I used the tool yesterday for changing the color of something it it worked fine. Now I am trying to do the same thing but the color is almost a haze. It is not as dark as it should be. The color swatch is the exact same though. My mode is Color, I am using background sampling with the background color selected using the eyedropper. Limits are set to contiguous. Tolerance to 18%. What did I do wrong?

  10. thanks 🙂 very nice tutorial, I knew most of options but I now consider using colour replacement brush in luminosity mode as it may be useful sometimes
