I'm not too familiar with photoshop, but there should be a fuzzy select tool or something to select the parts of your image that you want relcolored. After you do this, there should be a recolor tool that you can use to change the color. If you can't figure this out, download the Gimp. I'm alot more familiar with the Gimp. http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

If you need more help, PM me. I think the Qel Droma robe just uses the master robe texture, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, the Qel Droma robe uses just the standard jedi robe texture. All you'd have to do though is change your texture to your liking and set the textue varitation different.

I like to work with layers, desaturate it then recolor it with a layer set to multiply

Or you'll find it sooner than you expect. *cough* (http://myfreefilehosting.com/f/ac73192f56_0.56MB) Anyway, DDD's tutorial should prove helpful for you as it is for me.
