Need help selecting and changing colours

Jun 28, 2012 8:34 AM

I have been given the following graphic:


I have it in an Adobe Illustrator file format

I've never used the program before!


I need to change the red into white and the white into red


How do I do this?

I've opened up in illustrator and can't seem to select on specific part

When I try to sellect, it selects everything


The client has asked me to do the work - since the original graphics designer wants to charge a fortune for the changes 


I'm guessing it's a 1 minute job


Any help would be greatly appreciated

    If it's a vector graphic in Ilustrator format, and not just a graphic embedded in Illustator, then this will work:

    Choose the graphic and then in the color pallet: add selected colors.


    Create a third color as a placeholder for the white.


    Draw a box and make the fill and stroke the white color that was added to your pallet.

    In turn,

    Select>same>stroke color and change to your placeholder color

    Select>same>Fill color and change to your placeholder color


    then follow the same procedure to change the red to white, and the placeholder color to red.

    Hi there - Do you know if this original file is a vector image? The file you linked to is a rasterized .png file. If the original is a .png raster image, you can easily alter the colors in Photoshop.

    This might work for you if the art is either outline text or live text.
