Well if it were me I'd start here.

You'll have to be a little more specific as to what it is you are doing...but my first answer is nope.

I believe no because you are selecting a color. you can try selective color which might work well...

edit- that does sound weird but I know selective color is acceptable.

Changing colors by hue is legal. More info on what effect you are after?

Thanks every body fopr the reply.

I was talking about the following feature/menu item in photoshop CS2
Image > Adjustments > Replace colour

I went through the rules and it is very minimal.
I am confused. On one hand this effect seems applied to the whole of image and then again it will apply to only parts where the colour is.

when you replace color it makes a selection of color- that would be illegal. when you use it you can see the lines or 'dancing ants' that select the color.

Using selective color (under image> adjustments) is legal because it does not make a selection.

Yup, that is it IMHO. The selection of a certain part of the image for adjustment is illegal in basic editing; making the same adjustment to the entire canvas ( by using the hue/sat adjustment) is OK.

That is it then. Clear now.
Many thanks to everyone for the effort.
