    Changing the colour of part of an image

      This is hopefully an easy one!

      I have an image in a menu here (the red 'Supagard' one) that I need to change the background of from black to the blue to match the rest of the image :

      link here

      I've had a rummage, and seen how to change colours by selecting the area with the magic wand tool, and then using :

      Filters > Adjust Colours > Hue / Saturation

      But is there away to select a specific colour? (Or I guess the other way around and check the hue / saturation values for the blue background?

      Cheers,
      Iain

          The 'Replace Color Tool' (one of the Bitmap Tools) is what you are
          looking for. After you select it you will be able to use the eyedropper
          to pick your 'from' and 'to' colors.
