Greetings, people

I have a picture which I've attached down bellow. It's a bunch of squares, all with the same hue but different saturation and brighness. I'm trying to replace the hue with some other hue, but I can't seem to get it right.

From what I've heard, I need to create a layer above this one, and use the Hue blending mode to replace all the hues beneath. But there is a problem: It doesn't do that! It also changes saturation and brightness for some reason. I also tried Color mode, no luck. How am I supposed to replace a hue in a picture which has a single hue?

This is not correct. Use eyedropper on the top right square, and you see the brighness has changed. I want to all the brightness and saturation to be the same, and only the hue needs to change.

Another option would be creating neutral stripes and using a screen-Layer cöipping masked to a multiplying instance at a 90˚ angle.

.....or add an HSL adjustment layer and just move the Hue slider

Yes I tried this, and when I change Master to Reds, it works fine. However, I want to animate the hue shift by having a solid layer change its color, therefor, this method is not working for me. And also, I wanted to explain Hue blending mode to my students but now I'm confused! Because it doesn't seem to work as everyone says.

Fortunately, Hue is one of the easiest things to change in Photoshop, and one of the easiest ways is to use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer as Davescm suggested.

For more subtle adjustments you could use a Color Balance adjustment layer. A Gradient Map adjustment layer might also work, depending on the effect that you want to achieve and the gradient that you choose.

Whilst Color Balance and Gradient maps are useful, neither respect Omid's need to keep the Saturation and Brightness from the base layer.

Then Hue/Saturation would be the way to go, and that is always my first choice when I need to change Hue.

Something else that I noticed, is that when I change the color depth, the Hue blending mode result is different. And it's not just Photoshop. Every single software has this issue with Hue mode! Not sure why is this happening. It Hue mode doesn't replace the bottom layer's hue, then what is it for?

Are you talking about changing the image to 32bit?
