If you’d like to accurately apply a flat colour to a PNG with transparency, while maintaining the transparency, there’s many ways Photoshop can do it.

Here’s probably the easiest method:

  • Open the PNG.
  • Choose Layer → Layer Style → Color Overlay
  • Choose a colour (using normal blending mode and 100% opacity).
  • You’re done!
