Photoshop 5

I am wanting to change the colour of images in Photoshop 5 but still keep the same texture of the image that exists in the old colour.  How can this be easily done, matching the RGB numbers I have for the new colour, without repainting which loses the texture?

use 'replace color'
under 1 :
Image / Adjust / Selective color

2:
Image / Adjust / Replace color
 (for layers)

3:
Make a new layer, fill it with color,
Make the layer multiply / overlay and set transparency.

Be more clear in what you want then.
Both options jlee35 and mine, are ways to change colors, without affecting the texture of the picture.

Sorry but maybe I'm stupid or something but with that kind of clarity you should be able write a complete Photoshop manual on one sheet of A4 paper.  I'm not trying to be flippant or ungrateful for your valuable time, but the point I'm trying to make is your answer may be OK for people like you who are very skilled with the program, but I'm not and isn't this the reason why this site exists in the first place?

Wow,

I did not mean to make anyone angry.
You're right about what this site is for, but as i quote your question:

"I am wanting to change the colour of images in Photoshop 5 but still keep the same texture of the image that exists in the old colour.  How can this be easily done, matching the RGB numbers I have for the new colour, without repainting which loses the texture?"

I assumed you were familiar with the 'internal commands of photoshop', like using layers, and the menus on top of the screen with your mouse.

for the record,

go to munu on top of the screen, choose edit and then:

1 : Image / Adjust / Selective color
2 : Image / Adjust / Replace color (for layers)

In the menu, layers:
1:  Make a new layer, fill it with color,
Make the layer multiply / overlay and set transparency to about 50% or whatever you need.

In your question i assumed you want to make (or have) a picture with a texture, like a picture of grass, and you want to change the color of green to red for example.

If so, the accepted answer was incorrect. if you want an image with 'websave' colors, or a assigned palette of 256 colors, jlee35's answer was right.

It's up to you to accept, reject an answer, but i'd like to have some input on a commend i make, if you don't accept an answer.
So you did, and i noticed on that moment, that your question was not totally clear to me, so i asked, without wanting to pick on you.

As i stated,
"Both options jlee35 and mine, are ways to change colors, without affecting the texture of the picture.
What do you mis in the answer? "
Was a question to ask you for more input, so we could help you better.

hope it works for you now anyway :) and have a nice new year and christmas
if i spell it correct and as well as i didn't)

greets,

Justus.
