Is there any way to do a color range selection?

I'd highly recommend the tutorials section, and the help file (available by hitting F1 in the program). :-) Good luck on Friday!

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

The Magic Wand can be set to 'Global' by holding Shift while you click.

while Magic wand is a nice way to select parts of image, It does not consider a color range, instead it goes for a tolerance in the color.

Its like selecting the red in a rainbow and increase the tolerance, in some point it grows through the orange, but it wont get to green or blue until you set it at 100% at wich point it no longer considers the difrences in the colors

Now for a more specific way of selecting a 'colour range' :

Duplicate the original layer.

On Conditional Hue\Sat - select the colour range you want, and set the output to a colour with a high contrast to the rest of the image.

On Bightness\Constrast- set contrast to a point where your selection is fully selectable, like turning your selection black and the rest white.

Use magic wand to select the desired part, and then go back to the first layer to work with the selection.
