Thanks in advance...
there are 2 ways that i know of.
the first is by going into the "select" menu....and choosing the "color range" option. from there u can choose the basic color. the program will select that color range but you will still have to select bits and pieces...especially on poor quality photos....or photos where the object is in the shade etc...
the second (also needs to be used with the first) its using the "magic wand tool".
this thing selects whatever u click....but gets the whole area matchig colors. once u have used the color range option....use this tool while holding the shift key to select the rest of the area that is getting the color change.
