Tame the Color Range command in CS4

Adobe Photoshop CS4

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


I’m very frustrated with the Color Range command. Sometimes it works great, but sometimes I get more information in my selection than I want. For example, if the background has a lot of the same colors as the foreground, it’s impossible to select only one part of the image when I use the Color Range command. Can you offer any insight?


You’re right; sampling with the Color Range command can be a challenge when your image leans toward the monochromatic range. As shown in Figure A, the selection we’re getting with the Color Range command includes the plate as well as the grapes.
