Changing The Baclground Color Using Photoshop

I try to edit a gif format graphics file and face the following problem.

for the background, i am able to use magicwand to seperate image object from the background. However, i cannot get the color I want from color palatte toolbar.

This is because before I opean an image, there is unlimited color in the color palatte toolbar for me to select. However, after I open the image file, there is only limited color in the color palatte toolbar for me to selected. (They only display the color which is found in the image). How do i add new color in the palatte color toolbar?

thank you.

Gifs are ONLY 256 colors MAX. You are seeing the colors contained in your GIF file. To add new colors switch to RGB instead of Indexed Color mode. You set that under the Image menu.

Color palette toolbar? Where's that? Recent versions (PC as far as I remember, my Mac memory is fuzzier) don't work like that. Where is this palette and what version of PS?

All Photoshop after 5 has the palette tool on the menu...
make this

Image> Mode> RGB

after that you will have a gif image with a 16,7 million colours palete.

That probably is his problem, but there is no color palette which only displays the colors in an index color gif. Unless he's hitting image> mode > color table, which I doubt.
