Hue/Saturation Method

You can use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to change individual colors in a photograph.

Making a change to a single color only changes that color.

The complementary color is not changed.

In contrast, if you use a Levels adjustment layer to change a single color, the complimentary color is also changed.

That's often a disadvantage.

So, you may want to use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer.

Be sure to check off as you go along.
