To keep things simple, let's just say I have a picture of a red ball in Photoshop. The ball has shadows on it. How would I change the color of the ball to yellow without losing the shadows?
Here's the catch, I want to change the color of the ball to a VERY specific yellow. In other words, I want to change the color of the ball to the yellow that I've loaded into my 'Foreground' swatch.
I've tried using Fill->Hue->Foreground with bad results. However, it does keep the shadows. I think what is giving me the trouble is the original red color of the ball. If the ball was white with shadows, I think the Fill->Hue->Foreground command would work because the yellow wouldn't mix with any other color (red in this case).
