    1. Open the picture in full editor (expert tab in PSEv.12)
    2. Make a selection of the object designated for the color change, using one of the selection tools - e.g. Selection brush, lasso tool. Once the selection is complete, you should see a wiggly outline surrounding it - referred to as marching ants
    3. Go to Edit menu>fill selection>contents - use white
    4. Go to CTRL+D to get rid of the marching ants

    The stpes provided by hatstead above should very well in PSE 11. May you are not following the steps correctly or you are not able to make a precise selection. You have to use selection tools very carefully and precisely select the section of the photo that you want white. Then use either

    - Go to Edit menu>fill selection>contents - use white.

    - Select Brush Tool (Shortcut B) . Set foreground color to white . Paint over the selected sections of the photo that you want white.

     

    See this adobe help link for making selections

    This should work in all versions of the program. Where are you getting stuck?
