I have an image whose background I want to convert from silver to black. The color replacement doesn't work. It did work for replacing the foreground color but nothing happens on using color replacement tool on the silver color.

My image is: enter image description here

The target color when using color replacement tool is #424243 (a dark black shade). Pls let me know what are my options to get this working.

  • You're better off recreating this image. Just pen tool the outline, and fill it with black. – Michael Frank Sep 28 '15 at 2:13
  • I actually used your suggestion and it worked. Had to do some adjustments with brush tool though – Sandeep Sep 28 '15 at 3:16

The Edit > Replace Color tool might work for you:

Photoshop replace color example

Fiddle with the Fuzziness and Lightness settings to suit your needs. More information on various color replacement techniques within Photoshop are available in Adobe's help docs.

  • Huh.. I guess I haven't opened Photoshop in a while. Nice work. – Michael Frank Sep 28 '15 at 2:26
  • cool, but I already went ahead with @MichaelFrank's suggestion. Your solution looks good and Michael's also worked well for me :) – Sandeep Sep 28 '15 at 3:15
