    Question about Photoshop

    Anyone familiar with Photoshop help me out - I'm trying to apply a purple colour/filter to an image. Just starting out with Photoshop so not used to all that it can do, can someone point me in the direction of how to do it ?

    Question about Photoshop

    are you using a purple color filter to take out the purple or do you mean you want to add a purple haze or semi-transparent purple layer ver top of an image?

    Question about Photoshop

    man, it's been a few years since i had regular access to photoshop but....

    in one of drop down menus in the window there should be "add a layer"...if i remember correctly, you should be able to pick a color and select percent of transparency.

    once you add a layer, you can select that layer, use the selector tool to drag across the image--a box where you want to put the purple. in your paint brush tool options--a box that appears usually when you select the paint brush tool--you can set the transparency %.

    now, i don't know if that will help you cause the version i used to use was probably just version 3, maybe 4. you will find that there is a number of different ways to do the same thing.

    i think there is even an effects menu which might have gloss you set the color to purple, but not sure.

    anyway, wish i could help you more.

    Question about Photoshop

    Thats a good question Ultra. What software is everyone using? Is there some that are much better that others or what? I got Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 and theres still several things i'm learing like arching your words and whatnot. Theres so much stuff you can do.

    Create a new blank layer. Fill it with purple then adjust the opacity til it looks the way you want.

    Question about Photoshop

    I was going to download Photoshop 7, the full version. But, I was told that all I need is elements. I really have not had a chance to mess with it yet.
