Please let me start by saying that I'm no Photoshop expert. I'm self-taught, so their might a more effective way to accomplish this that I'm not aware of. I'm just sharing the way that I do it.
Here in Photo #1, we have a photo with a lot of bright purple in it.
If I wanted to tone down only the purple in the photo, this is how I would do it.
Open a new adjustment layer, as seen in Photo #2, above. (On the LAYERS Palette, click on the black & white circle at the bottom.) Choose "Hue/Saturation"
You will also notice that some lighter shades of purple are still there. No problem! Look at the color bar in Photo 5, below, highlighted in blue.
If you click and drag the ends of the gray bar more towards the blue end and red areas of the color bar, it will include more ranges of purple in the desaturation process.
Feel free to experiment! As you lengthen and shorten it, you will see either more or less of the purple disappear.
If something here in this tutorial can be explained in a way that is easier to understand, please let me know.
