    Hi everyone,

    A question for all PhotoShop/Paint Shop Pro wizards out there :

    Have a look at this image -

    http://1ssg.com/themes/Slackware/background.jpg

    I'd like to add a dark blue tint to it, without slightly enhancing the front layers so that the penguin and the rest of the 'gibberish/lines' stand out a bit more. How do I do this?

    I've tried using the Hard light filter, but it hasn't given me the best results (despite fiddling a lot with the gamma correction and contrast).

    Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Hi BC

    Here is one thing you could do.

    In photoshop 5.5, click on your layer palette.., select the layer you want to modify, select the arrow on the top right, select new adjustment layer, check the group with previous box.

    Now here you have two options for layer type. If you want to just darken, select levels.. and play with the arrows if you want to darken.

    But, since you want to modify and add a darker blue tint to it, choose the channel mixer adjustment layer. Select the blue channel and play with the levels until you get a colour you like.

    That should darken the lines out more without playing with the white background too much.

    Hope that helps

    Ahh, very good! It works very nicely. Although I would have preferred the writing etc. to come out on the light side, I can always fiddle around with that later.

    Many thanks Much appreciated.
