    Hi guys,

    I have changed eyes and lips; I have added makeup etc... but for some reason no matter what I do I can't change hair colour. I downloaded 2.8 thinking maybe the original dll was flawed but still no luck.

    Sequence:

    New Layer
    Overlay or Normal (neither worked)
    Transparency
    Paths Tool
    Selection From Path
    Colour Balance (and other attempts with Hue etc...)

    and colour does not change. What am I doing wrong? I have checked out tutorials and I have followed YT videos to the tee.

    It sounds like you're applying color balance to a blank layer. Make a copy of the original layer and then try changing it.

    Yea pretty much what David said.

    If you want to use a new layer, you have to go:
    - New Layer
    - Overlay/whatever
    - Paths Tool / selection tool etc.
    - Select region
    - Fill with brown/yellow/black (depending on color)
    - Play with opacity and layer modes and colors.

    How come everyone always blames the dll files?

    Poor, Poor dynamic link libraries. :(
