Replacing a color on a layer

If I am painting on different layers using the paint brush and I decide I would like to change the color on one layer without affecting the area around the color, is there a way of changing the color.
Lock out the transparent area and only paint on the painted area.


You have a couple of options. There is the Filter > Color Adjustment > Replace Color filter.

Or you just use the magic wand selection tool to select the color, then you can paint within the selection.

Or you can lock layer transparency by following this video tutorial:

Let us know if one of those don’t meet your needs.

Thank you Kirstin. I will see which option fits my work/art. I am new here and hope this program would take the place of other programs I use for my digital art.
