1 Open the Replace Color dialog box. (See "Making color adjustments" on page 132.)
2 Select a display option:
• Selection to display the mask in the preview box. Masked areas are black, and unmasked areas are white. Partially masked areas (areas covered with a semitrans-parent mask) appear as varying levels of gray according to their opacity. For more information, see "Using channel calculations to blend layers and channels (Photoshop)" on page 275.
• Image to display the image in the preview box. This option is useful when you are working with a magnified image or have limited screen space.
3 Click in the image or in the preview box to select the areas exposed by the mask. Shift-click or use the eyedropper + button to add areas; Alt-click (Windows), Option-click (Mac OS), or use the eyedropper - button to remove areas.
4 Adjust the tolerance of the mask by dragging the Fuzziness slider or entering a value. This controls the degree to which related colors are included in the selection.
5 Drag the Hue, Saturation, and Lightness sliders (or enter values in the text boxes) to change the color of the selected areas.
