wt!  UH, why is your Avatar so familiar?

and here's your help.

Open Photoshop (great program) and open the file (eg. the peasent texture for HV)

Select the area you want to recolor (eg, the blue area of a peasent's shirt) using the Magic Wand Tool (W)

Be careful with the selection.  Carefuly select all the blue, and then press alt and Magic Wand the black areas of the texture to deselect them.  

When you have your selection the way you want it, recolor it to your hearts content.

Current Color = The color that happens when you color.

Tools you will use:
Air Brush        Paint Brush
Rubber Stamp     History Brush
Eraser           Pencil/Line Tool
Smudge           Dodge/Burn/Sponge
Pen              Text
Ruler            Linear Gradient Tool
Fill             Eyedropper

Air Brush/Paint Brush = creates a feathered color on your image.
History Brush = Reverts to the part of the image before it damaged.
Eraser = Erases
Pencil/Line = Creates a flat color on the image.
Smudge = Creates Smudges
Dodge = lightens the effected area a bit.
Burn = darkens the effected area a bit.
Sponge = greys the effected area a bit.
Text = Creates Text.  Somone should make a peasent with a shirt that says "I love NY"
Linear Gradient Tool = Wacky colors, don't know how to explain it.
Fill = Fills all the area with the current color.
Eyedropper = Select a color, it will become the current color.

____________
How exactly is luck a skill?

You should press on Ctrl+U.
It will open a new window with three colour features.
The first one is Hue. It changes your colour to other basic colours.
The second is Saturation. After you pick your basic colour, you should pick the specific shade.
The third is Lightness. You can brighten the colour or darken it.
