6. In the layers window you should find a configuration similar to ours, namely:
A new layer appears with a layer mask next to it.
Your selection should appear white on a black background.

If you get an inverse layout, you will need to go back and invert your selection before choosing the "Hue/Saturation" adjustment layer.

Move this slider to the right or to the left to vary the color according to your needs.

You can also play with the "Saturation" and "Luminosity" sliders
