hey dude...
i use paint shop pro 7, beacause i rekon it's easier to use, maybe your should try using it.
I taught myself how to use it, although there are a few things i'm still unsure of, like i can cahnge the colour of a car, but not properly, it only lets you selct RGB up to 100 for each colour.
Could someone help please?.
Cheers

Mason.

Futura, try just taking the mouse ball out and use tweezers to pick off the crap on the rollers inside, makes a huge difference! As for the lowering job, not bad for a first effort. I've been using Photoshop actively for about 5 odd years, so if you have an problems let me know!

Thanks for that goodz!!!

I just did it, and made a huge difference. But I would like to get one of those new mice, the onces with the little sensors. My mate has one and there pretty good.

But now you could probably give me little pointers on how to change the colour, to say red??

Thanks

To change colour....

1. Select the Lasso tool, second tool first column in the toolbox pallette.
2. Select the shape you want to change the colour of.
3. On the menu bar choose: Select > Feather... give it 1 or 2px to give the selection a soft edge.
4. Once your happy with the selection choose: Image > Adjust > Hue/Saturation from the menu bar.
5. Grab the Hue slider and move left and right to change colour


There's probably other ways but that's how I do it

This is using PS9 but 7 isn't that different .
