Replace Color not working - Photoshop 2018

Feb 13, 2020

Under Enhance, Adjust Color, Replace Color, I use the eyedropper to select the foreground color ("f9fdff") of my PSD file.  In the Replacement box at the bottom, I click on the Result square to bring up the Color Picker (Result Color) box.  There I type in "ffffff" as the color I want "f9fdff" replaced with and choose OK.  The Result box in the Replace Color dropdown now appropriately shows "ffffff" as the color with which to replace "f9fdff".  I click OK to make the replacement happen and no change occurs. 

 

Suggestions please!

 

(Note: Fuzziness is set to 0, I've tried it with Localized Color Clusters checked and uncheck - no success)

White, gray or black are not colors. They are the absence of color.

 

There is no color to replace. The tool works, but it has nothing to work with.

Actually Replace Color is a very crude and primitive tool, and I would never recommend it to anyone. Plus it causes a lot of misunderstanding like here. "Color" in everyday language may include white and black, but in Photoshop (and color theory) it has a much more specific meaning, separate from luminance/brightness.

 

There are much more precise and more flexible ways to do this. Painting on a separate layer set to Color blend mode achieves the same thing, and allows you to use masks to target the area precisely - and reversibly so that you can go back and readjust.

 

If you need to take an off-white area and turn pure white, you'd use Levels to set the white point, again possibly using masks to target a specific area.
