    A real simple method depending on your original is to just set the paint bucket to "contiguous" and it will fill only the color of the pixel/s you click on.

    You might find it easier to select the color to be changed as follows.

    1. Make a co selection using the lasso tool. Tihs will keep other areas
    from being affected.

    2. Make this a new layer (CTRL+J) on the PC

    3. Now use the magic wand or another color selection tool to select all the
    color you want changed.

    4. Use appropriate sliders to change the color, or use the paint bucket if
    there are no textures or whatever, that you are concerned about.

    Select areas and fill using the paint bucket tool.
    I would place each new area on a new layer [initially], as this would facilitate easier touching up, if required.

    Can I fill a scanned image with colour?

    I've scanned some cartoon line pictures of people. I want to fill in different areas with colour - the trousers might be green and the sweatshirt might be red. I've converted the bitmaps to greyscale, selected areas and changed to RGB. I've then chosen foreground and background colours and filled using backspace but all the detail of the pockets on the trousers is filled as well.

    Any ideas?
