Changing color:

changing color of a feature isn't too hard - you select the feature using the selection tools (lasso, magic wand, whatever) and then you can modify the hue value. It usually works best to do in two steps - convert to greyscale, then to the final color.


Hair length, clothes, etc - for those, you need to go in and draw the new stuff, or use morphing tools to make small tweaks (morph too much, it looks like you are playing with silly putty). It's a long, slow process, I'd highly suggest getting a stylus, as using a mouse to draw is not usually useful, if you have any skill at drawing by hand. the two are completely different disciplines.


someday, i'd love to have a touchscreen tablet computer, to run photoshop on. I'd finally be able to make sketches :-)
