    k is there a way to select all of one color in a layer with just one or two clicks instead of having to hold down ctrl and click with the wand 8 million times?

    so, for example, lets say i have a multicolored background with 75 blue dots on it. do i have to hold down ctrl and click every single one of the 75 blue dots to select them all or can i somehow tell the wand (or some other tool) to select all of the blue areas?

    thanks!

    If you adjust the tolerances on the wand and click on a color, it will select all colors that are in that range. For example, the reason the wand tool isn't picking up all blue, is that the blue isn't the same. Its actually 75 different shades of blue.
