How do I change the color of this text? 

 

I've tried many things, watched video's, ...

Hi,

if the text is not in a separate layer (i.e. a "text" layer) then its already been rasterised (made into pixels.) which means its now an "image of text". That differtntiation makes a difference to how you must approach the problem.

You'll basically need to select the text and change its color that way  -  I hope its all on a plain background, if so you should be able to make a selection easily. .

Google this : "making a selection in photoshop"

Then Googler this: "adding color to a selection in photoshop"

 

I hope this helps

if so, please "like" my reply and if you're OK now, please mark it as "correct", so that others who have similar issues can see the solution

thanks

If the text is a Layer of its own you can try using Layer > Layer Style > Color Overlay.
