Hello! I need help changing the color of this image from green to darker colors. The hue/saturation tool works wonders but I can't seem to be able to make it dark red or brown, since there is no Value option. Is there any other tool I could use to change the color of the lines and their respective glow from green to a darker shade of a color?

 @AndrewDavid provides a very good method, but I'll point out that the Lightness control is equivalent to Value. You could also apply Brightness/Contrast after Hue/Saturation.

My method:

  1. Duplicate the layer
  2. Apply Adjustments > Black & White
  3. Set Blend mode to Difference
  4. Flatten
  5. Hue/Saturation: Up the Saturation to 200 then play with the Hue slider. Red is around 94. For brown use Hue 120, Sat 160 & LIghtness -20.

The trick here is to make the image something other than a primary shade of green prior to using Hue/Sat. This is why I used an adjustment layer. After step 4 you have a pleasant shade of purple which has solid components in all three color channels. Think of these as something Hue/Sat can chew on :mrgreen:
