    Blue tint in Photoshop 5.0

    Hi all,

    I'm working on a new design for my website, and I'm going to incorporate the top part of the Internet Explorer browser into it. However, I want it to have a light blue tint. How can I do this?

    Thanks,
    Corbb O'Connor

    Use "Adjust hue/saturation" and tick the "colorize" box if you want a more prounced effect.

    Another technique if you need to repeat the same colour adjustments across a number of images is to either:

    -Use Hue and Saturation to 'colourise' the image, and then save the settings to apply.

    -Create an action with the Hue and Saturation settings in, and then batch process the whole folder of images.

    -Create an adjustment layer, that you can drag across to other images.

    Personally, if I had quite a few to do, I would use the batch command.

    An easy way to do this is create a layer above the image you want to colorize. Fill it with the color you want (in your case blue). Then start playing with blending modes and opacity. You'll find that you have a lot more control over the final result.

    Take a look here for a list of blending mode shortcuts:

    Scroll down about 2/3 down the page and look for my post.

    Creoles suggestion is great, but you don't even need to create an extra layer.

    Just create a "layer style" for that image and click on the "color overlay" box.

    You'll be able to have a lot of control this way without fussing with the extra layer. And the nice thing is that the layer effects can be toggled on/off very easily.

    Can you tell me what I click on to create "layer styles?"

    If you're using v5.0 you won't have layer styles I don't think.

    Try my method. It amounts to the same exact thing.
