Im using PS CC and am trying to change the color of an icon from blue to black.
I tried using the color replacement tool and even though black is selected, the area changed to gray. When I use the selection tool and the "fill"command both "fill black" and "fill foreground color" they both change to gray instead of black.
If I try another color-- (I tried Red) the color replacement tool and the fill tool turned them to a salmon color.
I thought maybe I was in RGB settings instead of CMYK but I checked color mode and I'm in CMYK
Any thoughts on how to fix this?
Is your opacity set at 100%?
Yes set at 100%
Set the blend mode to Luminosity.
Thank you Barb! This did the trick!
Awesome! Glad I could help.
Have you to tried Selective Colour (Image>Adjustments>Selective Colour)? I use this to change grays and blacks. Then you can fine tune with Replace Colour.
This worked for me. Thanks David!
