    Hi, I'm trying to use the color replacement tool to replace the color red with black on a photo. The only problem is it only changes it to gray. Any ideas or suggestions? Sorry if this is a noob question, I'm not exactly the best at using photoshop hahaha. Thanks!

    I find that the colour replacement tool isn't very good in many cases. You might be better off learning how to best use the selection tool or how to paint a mask on a layer. I find a combination of selections works well with the curves filter. This lets me subtly change the colour without blowing out detail.

    If you can post your image we would be able to better help.
