    In using the Replace Color function in PS Elements 2.0, I have trouble
    selecting the precise replacement color I want using the slider values for

    I tried using the color swatches to select my desired color, noting the
    values for HSB, and entering those values in the HSB boxes of the Replace
    Color dialogue window. However, the numbering system differs in the two
    functions. The numbering system in Replace Color goes from +/-180, +/-100,
    +/-100 whereas the values in the color swatches dialogue boxes go from

    What is the correspondence between the two modes?
    More directly, how can I set the desired HSB values in the replacement

    Thanks! . . . . patrick

    For Hue multiply the color swatch value by 256/360, and subtract 180 to get
    the equivalent slider value. Multiple Saturation and Brightness by 100/255
    to convert to percent.
