How to remove just a few ceramic tiles?

I have a ceramic tiled backsplash and undercabinet wall. I have changed my color scheme in my kitchen and wanted to alter the few sporadically placed tile that are in the color that went with my previous color scheme and change them for ones that will compliment my new colors. Is there a way that I can remove those few tiles (none of them touch each other & there's only 6 in total) somewhat "easily"? I thought that I had heard of people needing to replace a cracked tile or two before, I just don't know how they would proceed. Thanks for any information you could share.

use a grout saw to remove the grout from around the offending tiles and GENTLY pry them out. use a thin scrap of wood to pry against so the ajacent tile does not crack.

After you remove the grout, drill a hole in the center of the tile that you're removing so you can have a starting point to start removing your tile. If you don't, you may crack the tile next to it that you intend on leaving.
