How can I select and show all pixels of the same colour?

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm not sure I'm going the right way about this and I appologise if I'm going over old ground here but there's a problem I've got that I just can't figure out.


I've managed to pixelate an image down to 128x128 pixels and have the amount of colours to 64.


However, I'm trying to get it that when I select a coloured pixel that all the other pixels of that colour are highlighted.


The magic wand seems to be the sort of tool I need but it highlights all colours/pixels that are similar; I want all pixels that have the exact RGB as the pixel selected.


Any help would be great as I am really new to this.

The keyboard shortcut to toggle Global mode for Paint Bucket and Magic Wand tools is the Shift key.  Just hold it down as you make the selection.


And just so you know, the mods are probably going to move this to Discussion and Questions thread.


True. This section of the forum is reserved for the publishing of tutorials - so general questions don't belong in this section.
