Hello,

 

This is my first post.  I'm fairly new to Photoshop but have had some good success so far.  I am using Windows 11, Photoshop 24.  

 

I have a photo of some jugs with fluid in them.  The original photo has blue fluid.  I need to change the color of the fluid to:  magenta, green, purple and orange.  I have successfully changed the colors to magenta, green and purple but I can't seem to get it to orange.  Any suggestions?  See attached photo.

I would use a Hue Saturation Adjustment Layer and choose the Cyan channel to adjust the hue accordingly:

From there you can adjust levels, etc to brighten the image.

Added bonus - you can also use the mask attached to the layer to isolate your adjustments further.

Kevin,

 

Thank you!  In between our messages, what I did was

1. Changed the color space to LAB. 

2. Selected a color range.  

3. Made a Hue / Saturation Adjustment Layer to get to the desired orange.

4.  Made a Brightness / Contract Adjustment layer.

 

This worked.  But, your method obviously worked too.  THANK YOU.
