replace single color

How do I replace a single Color in photoshop!?

All, and I really mean all, sites I find with Google either use the replace color tool box (which just replaces hue), the replace color tool (which just replaces hue and saturation), or use color adjustment layers, colorize, gradient layers, select color range, etc which all modify a (fussy) range of colors and can’t be applied on a specific part of an image without going through extra trouble (layers).

I just want to quickly replace a single color, (eg. red 255,0,0,0) with another color (eg. Green 0,255,0), and do this often because I work with pixel art most of the time.

To illustrate it with Paint Shop Pro, this is what I want:

Not sure if I’ve missed something, but can’t you just:

  • define the area in which colour is to be replaced with the selection tool
  • Pick the new colour
  • switch to Fill tool, and set Tolerance to 0, Contiguous off
  • click on a pixel of the relevant colour (you can check the colour of the pixel under the cursor with the Info palette)
