Re: Color Replacement problems-- Photoshop CS2

"When I use a Lasso tool to select an area, is there a way to lock it? When I need to perform several different proceedures to an area, it's a pain to have to re-select it each time."

Rob, after you have made the selection go to the Select Menu and choose Save Selection. Whenever you want the selection back go back to the Select Menu and choose Load Selection. You can name selections so that you can have multiple selections saved.
Regards, Murray

Re: Color Replacement problems-- Photoshop CS2

Mayday - yes generally I will try and produce colour adjustments without masks wherever I can.

Its important to understand that multiple adjustments, especially masked ones, are destructive. This is because Photoshop flattens each adjustment layer in sequence when the image is flattened for output, each time degrading the base pixels slightly. I've had to salvage too many files made by other people who chaotically pile 50 adjustment layers on an 8 bit image not realising how it can break the fine transitions apart, especially important on skin.

If I do need to use masks for colour, usually this happens where I need to do something really quickly, then I will produce proper graduated masks from the image data using Select Color Range or Calculations.
