    I simply want the logo (outline and text) changed to gold (RPG 250/222/30)

    If you have the Photoshop file just select the text or the outline and change the color.

    I can think of about 5 or 6 ways to do this. Here is one tutorial which explains some of the ways: http://digital-photography-school.co...r-in-photoshop
    Hope this helps or do a Google search on "changing colour in a Logo in Photoshop" most will mention a colour overlay blending mode with or without using a mask.

    For future reference do the following: As your logo is black the the easiest way is to change Mode ---- Greyscale, then go ---- Dutone, in the preview dialogue box click on the Black colour then enter your RGB values --- 255, 222,30.

    The ways that were shown in yesterdays tut was for files with alpha channels and others, sorry.

    This can also be done using the Flash/blending option in Photoshop right? Forgot the actual name because can't open Photoshop right now.

    Another way of doing it is with the magic wand, set tolerances to 99 make your selection, change your foreground colour to your choice in the tool bar and go to Edit, Fill and in the dialog box chose foreground colour and hit OK then deselect.
