PSP: Using Blend Ranges For Selective Colour Adjustment

This is a Paint Shop Pro technique that allows you to adjust the colour balance of the red/green/blue tones in an image individually, similar to the way the selective colour tool works in Photoshop.

For advanced-level/confident users. Instructions cover PSP 7* and PSP 8, but should be translatable to newer editions.

* Edit: It seems not all versions of PSP 7 support blend ranges. Version 7.04 does, 7.0 doesn't, not sure about versions in between. If your layer properties doesn't have the 'blend ranges' tab, your version of PSP 7 may be too old to use this tutorial. Sorry, folks.
