When I'm coloring in photoshop and I use the wand tool to select and some of the colors are similar, and it's touching another similar color- when I use the wand tool to select one part they both get selected.

I've been running into this problem alot lately.

Is there anyway to get around this?

Or do you have to just use a bigger variety of selections. Sometimes I have more than one type of brown on an image not exactly the same but the wand just automatically selects them all if they're close. Sometimes I want them to colored seperately.

Is there any way to adjust this?

Go to the tool bar and adjust the tolerance for the wand, DJ. The lower the tolerance the less similar pixels the wand will select. The default setting is 32. Hope this helps.

You can also select the color with the eye dropper tool, and go to select>color selector. Then adjust the slider from there.

Yea it is you tolerance level. It's too high.
You want your paint bucket, lasso, wand to be set to 0 tolerance and uncheck anti alias.
