    First one is one of my older ones, wasn't too sharp and clear to start. (I
    can't seem to find a good cow one, with a lighter colored cow which I think
    would help)

    I remembered doing a tutorial once about changing a person's hair color,
    and it used quick mask mode then inverse it, and use adjustment layer solid
    color fill (unless you wanted their hair gradient or patterned (LOL)

    I also played around with layer modes (I'm just now noticing they are
    there) and sharpening the picture more, after.

    I did that one other time (the eye color) I think what I discovered
    tonight is sharpening and trying different layer modes.
    Also, finding the right picture probably helps too.

    Of course, one might wonder... how often are we going to need to change
    the color of a cow? LOL But, nice to know if we need or want to.

    You might not need to change the color of a cow, but if you need to
    change the color of something else, it can be done rather quickly.
    Here is an example.....the top picture, the red car is the original.

    That came out nice. Did you use color replace? I notice how all the details
    (not red changed to blue) stayed there, and the color still looks shiney
    and clear.

    That was done using a Photoshop plugin called Curvemeister.
    Curvemeister is like Photoshop's Curves function on steroids. The
    plugin is a bit compicated to use, but once you get the hang of it, it
    is an amazing tool to have.

    The newest version of Curvemeister is version 3 and I have used it
    with Photoshop 7, and I am now using it with CS3.
    If you should decide to get it, I'd highly recommend the online
    classes they offer at their website. Until I took the classes, I had
    no idea how to use it. The classes are designed for all levels of
    users from beginners to advanced, and the teacher, Greg, does a great
    job explaining things.

    I probably won't be buying anything for awhile, or taking classes (if they
    aren't free) right now the focus is on getting ready for another winter. So,
    anything that takes up much attention, and especially money, has to go on
    hold. I do have plenty of things to do (and learn) still, with photoshop
    with what I have.
    Thanks for the info.
