    All,

    I don't usually frequent this group but I think you can help. I'm looking
    for a program that will take a color value, either from an RGB value or the
    color from a selected solid-color area, in one image and find the same
    color value in a second image. Easily, in less than 5 steps. I have
    PaintShop Pro but I haven't figured out how to do it. Any help? Thanks.

    *********************
    In Photoshop:
    1. Create a color patch or make a small rectangular selection of the color
    from Image A and paste it in a corner of Image B. It will be Layer 1
    2. Choose the Magic Wand. On its options bar, set the Tolerance
    specification to 0 or more (your allowable variation from dead match),
    uncheck Contiguous. Check Use All Layers.
    3. Click on the rectangular sample you had copied.

    In Photoshop it couldn't be easier.

    1. In the first picture use the "eyedropper" tool to click the color that
    you want.
    2. Go to the second picture and click "Select" then click "Color Range"
    3. Adjust the slider if needed click okay.

    if you want to use a color value in step one just double click the
    foreground swatch and enter the value instead.

    Very close.

    In PSP 8.

    1. Make a small rectangular selection of the color from Image A and paste as
    new layer in Image B. This will be in Raster 1 layer.
    2. Choose the Magic Wand. On its options bar, set the Tolerance
    specification to 0 or more (your allowable variation from dead match (I
    don't know what your talking about)) :)
    3. In layer Raster 1 use the magic wand to select the colour in the sample
    rectangle.
    4. Switch to the background layer of origional image, goto Sellection >
    Modify > Select color range.
    5. While in there you can modify the tolerance and use CTRL + click to move
    atound the preview and see your results.
    6. Invest in photoshop, see tabasco1s post.
