I scan lots of vinyl record covers to create a nice front to the CD case I will be creating.
Where a cover has an area of solid flat colour, the scan of this area consists of different similar colours, giving it a slight texture type look.
In the past ,I have used "Paint Shop Pro", where you set the foreground brush colour to the colour you want, select the color replacer tool and use the tolerance amount to change colours close to the foreground colour. With this you end up with the area being all the one solid colour.

I can’t seem to do this in PhotoShop. Color Replacer seems to be mainly used to change to a different colour and colours close to that one will also be changed, but the overall area keeps the same texture type look.
Hope this question makes some sense 🙂
Has anyone got any ideas to help???
Cheers
Gary

Maybe use the magic wand tool and play with the tolerance till it selects the region you want?
