Hi, I just came across this community :) I am color blind and need help. I need to make t-shirt templates of ever color t-shirt I carry, as I am a screen printer. I have taken a picture of one blank t shirt (royal blue) laid out flat, I removed the background in photo paint for X4. I now have the t-shirt file I want and now I need to change the color of this shirt to make 12 different color t-shirt files. I CANNOT do this without someone walking me through the steps, as I don't know how to do this process. And I MUST be able to select the color I need for each shirt by entering the RGB color numbers, as I am color blind and cannot just alter colors using a color slider bar of any kind. I need to know a process where I can enter the colors through RGB numbers without sliding any bars to adjust colors. I have all of the RGB numbers I need for every t-shirt. Thank you for the time.

" I can't even figure out how to make a file or layer show through the other."
There is a small icon with an eyeball in the layers (objects) window, click it for on or off.
"I can use the magic wand but when I do there is no "glowing" selected line around anything like your video shows."
I think you are referring to the Marching Ants...To Duplicate a layer see lower illustration
When you have your mask on a second layer fill the mask with your paint bucket tool as Jeff Showed. Change the layer to any of the different types for the desired effect.
The problem might be that you haven't changed the layer blend mode to anything other than normal. Try Multiply, Soft Light or others to get your desired effect.
Joe; You have to use the Rich setup to post a screen shot or file as shown below. I hope this is some help.
I started with a picture I took of this shirt in royal blue (now shown in burnt orange) and I can now create all the colors I need by eye dropper selecting colors from the t shirt manufacture stock photos, reading the RGB values, and entering them in through the steps in the video. This truly is a huge thing for me. Being color blind makes it nearly impossible to work with photos, changing colors is nearly impossible for me. Thank you for the video and all the added posts. You guys saved me from paying someone to do this for me, and none of you had to do any of this, making a video, adding notes to screen shots, that's really amazing. This community is pretty amazing!
