Choosing Colors in the Color Picker
Click on a bright red shade in the color picker, similar to the color I've chosen in the screen shot. Notice the two squares just left of the cancel button. The color shown on top is the currently selected color, the color on the bottom is the color you are replacing.

If you see a small cube displayed, it indicates that the color selection is not "Web-safe." Below the Web safe alert, Photoshop displays a tiny swatch of the closest Web-safe color match. Clicking on either of the closest match swatches will change the selected color to the closest match.
