Using the Color Replacement Tool
The Color Replacement tool lets you replace a specific color in your image. For best results use soft brushes with this tool to help blend the colors into the original image. Have you ever captured that perfect picture of a family member or friend, only to find they have red eyes? Or maybe there’s a part of your image where the color draws attention away from the focal point. Either way, the Color Replacement tool is a great feature that allows you to take control of the final image.
