I don't see why you couldn't just use the Eyedropper tool to click on the text. Then check the Color panel for the RGB color numbers.
Hi Barbara -
I do have the the RGB numbers, But I can't seem to (or don't know how to) change the "tree trunk" silhouette of a palm tree I made black. I can have the tree trunk active but can't seem to change the color to the pin or green in the Text. I have a png file of the "tree trunk" and a psd but can't figure it out. Hue and saturation I can change the color but it's a guess and a bit off....
Thanks for any and all help and info......!
another note - I can see the eyedropper in Hue and saturation but can't activate it - even when I check "colorize"
Thank you Barbara for any and all help!

This is how I would suggest changing the color, and I would use the Photoshop file rather than the PNG.
It looks like your image has a transparent background. I put a white layer underneath so that the screen captures will show up better.
If that is the case, all you have to do to select the black tree trunk is make a rough selection around the black trunk.
At the top of the Layers panel, click to lock transparency.
Make the color you want to use your active Foreground color. To do that you can click on it with the Eyedropper.
Choose Edit > Fill. For Contents choose Foreground Color.
Select > Deselect.
Let me know if this answers your question.

Thank You Barbara!!!!! I'm not sure why I went to PNG - maybe my marbles completely fell out! This is perfect as well - thank you for the quick and saving tutorial!!!
