In Photoshop Elements 2, I have created text on a new text layer, and later needed to change the colour of that text from black to grey.

I tried simplifying the layer, and then using the red-eye tool. This technique for colour replacement is recommended in Mikkel Aaland’s excellent book ‘Photoshop Elements 2 Solutions’. However, in this case, it did not make any difference to the colour of the text.

I would be grateful for any suggestions, using the red-eye tool, or any other technique. Thanks in advance for your help.

Just select the text by clicking the mouse and dragging over the text. There should be a black square along the middle of the toolbar which, when you place the cursor over it, will indicate, "Set the text color." Click on it and you’ll be able to choose another color. Good luck.

Also try this before simlifying,
select the text layer;
select the text tool;
click & drag on the text to highlight it;
then on the text toolbar on the right hand side is a block of colour, click on it; pick your colour from the colour picker, click OK;
it’s done – et voilà – job’s a gud ‘un
