    Digibashing is easy. Basically, you get an image of a toy, or anything really, that you want to digibash, on you computer in a file format that you can import or use in a paint or photoshop program. once you have the image open in the program, figure out which tool lets you select "similar" colours. (It's usually a combination of the lasso tool found in MS paint in combination with one of the menus at the top where you can select similar) Once you have figured that out, what you do is select the part you want to change the colour of by lassoing a small part of it. Then select "similar". The program should then select all of the parts in the image that have that colour. then you can recolour them. I'm drunk right now, and I've never digibashed before, so if I messed anything up, please point us in the right direction.:drunk

    There are many procedures you could use depending on the effect you want. Do not "paint" with a full opacity if you want to keep highlights, shadows etc. Simplest measure could be an adjustment of selective color (colour).
    Don't be afraid of help files, adobe support, or knowledge base.
