    Removing one colour from a PSD

    Ok,

    I have a design I made. I want to remove a colour from it, and replace that colour with transparency. The idea is to then slice the images and allow the designs colour to be changed with a CSS file.

    Example:

    http://www.russclow.co.uk/shawn/school.html

    The top Red header, I want to be able to change that with CSS. to do that, I need to remove the red from that image, so the gradient stays, but the actual colour shows up underneath the transparent PNG controlled by CSS.

    Any ides?

    if i were you i'd just replicate the gradient in another colour, then use css to change the bg-image, otherwise you'll have to have a black to white gradient under a solid colour (semi transparent) image.

    if you've still got the psd, rather than using the gradient tool, use blending options>gradient overlay..you can create the desired gradient and then switch the colours around as you choose, while maintaining the actual gradient.

    hope this helps
