The colour replacement tool is another one of the neglected tools in the Photoshop toolbox, which is a shame because it is incredibly powerful yet easy to use. It is not unlike the Healing Brush in that you paint with it like a normal paintbrush, but instead or overwriting the image with a solid colour, it changes the colour while holding onto the details and textures in the image.
It’s also easy to apply the colour replacement very precisely because you use it like a paintbrush.
In this video tutorial, I’m using the Colour Replacement tool to change a subject’s eyecolour from green to blue – while importantly keeping the realism.
