I have attached an image to hopefully explain better, but if say I have an image that ranges from color 'A' to 'C', and I want it to range from 'B' to 'D' instead - what is the best method?

I'm sure it has something to do with color range or similar. I'm aware of the Hue + Colorise method, but it doesn't allow me to pick the end point colors (B and D).

(Also ignore the shadow in the image.)

2 - image>adjustment>replace color

Seriously fantastic - I have been trying to figure that out for ages! (btw. Number 1 worked for my situation) – Chris Apr 2 '11 at 8:36
That's a good way to do it, but be sure to mask off your Earth (and it's reflection) so that the shadow doesn't get remapped (and stays gray)... if you want it to stay gray. (^_^) – Kevin Bomberry Dec 13 '12 at 3:10

easier way is to edit its hue. go to edit > adjustments > hue & saturation (in short: ctrl + U). Play around with the hue till you find your color and you are done.
