HOw to recolor this text

I need to recolour the gold text so its white.

If I select it its not really very good.

I thought about using the colour replacer tool but it goes gray.

How can I make it go white?

Or, should I be looking for a different method?

Many thanks

Re: HOw to recolur this text

The image as posted is quite pixelated including areas around the lettering and I assume that you need to keep the background colour as it is, not changed to black?

With the above in mind one way you could try is:

Make a copy of the red channel
Adjust channel with Levels so background is black and letters are lightened to white. If needed to accent the thin lines paint over with a white brush set to Overlay
Load the red copy channel as a selection then paint inside the selection with white.
You may also need to experiment with refine edge on the mask to reduce jpeg artifacting.

Click on attachment and wait a few seconds for image to change

You could probably also do similar by using a Channel Mixer adjustment layer set to Lighten mode and adjust the RGB sliders and constant to achieve similar
