I'm trying to change the colour of a pair of jeans in an image, to make them the same colour as the jeans another person is wearing in the same image. I'm using CS2 and trying to follow the colour replacement instructions, with no luck. Can anyone provide clear, concise instructions to help me, please? Thanks!

The short of it... Select color range... choose several points of blue in the jeans... adjust how much to capture as much of the jeans in question... deselect everything you don't wanna change... adjust the color as needed via selective color, color balance, etc. (I'd use selective color to match another color)

Here is what I would do. New Hue and Saturation adjustment layer. add a layer mask (holding alt to make it start out black). roughly draw on the mask (at 100% opacity) in white over the jeans you're wanting to change. slide the hue slider until you get the right color. now get detailed with that mask. done. It should take about 2 minutes, max.

edit: I should also add--if the jeans also differ in luminosity (brightness/darkness), I'd create a curves layer and copy+paste the mask that I just made for the color adjustment. I'd then pull up or down on the curve to adjust.

I keep forgetting that such things as Layer Masks are NOT a priori knowledge :D

Easier (IMO), but requires masking:
(assuming luminosity is more or less the same) Add layer, set blend mode to "color", brush over the one jeans with a brush sampled from the other jeans...

Two words: Lab Mode... actually this subject might go over some people's heads unless a good explanation is given, so courtesy of me, here are 6 pages from Photoshop LAB color, on the subject of changing the color of something.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

You changed everything in green, not only the car.

It's not my picture, and It's explained as looking wrong in the book, didn't you read any of it?
