Coloring only gray

When I am trying to change colors to draw on a specific piece of clip art, it draws only in gray. I am wondering if it's because it says "grayscale" on the title.

    Now I know that the problem was that the name was grayscale, but how do I change that?

    I was afraid you'd ask that. What operating system are you using?

You will need work under RGB mode and add a new layer to coloring there.

What is meant by the term contrast when applied to drawing in graphics

(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
The colors white and black provide the greatest degree of contrast. Complementary colors also highly contrast with one another.

For the past two days I have had to reset the main circuit breaker for the outside unit. It appears to be running fine now. I'm just wondering is this an indication of the compressor about to go bad,...

Bill, first thing, make sure the outdoor coil isn't stopped up with dirt. This will cause the compressor to overheat and possibly trip the breaker. If you you can check the amp draw that would be good. Look on the data tag on the outside unit and look for RLA or "running load amps". Running amp draw should never exceed this number, it should actually normally run 10% under RLA. If its real hot where you are like it is here (109) it will be running close to RLA.
If you coil is stopped up with dirt, etc., turn off the breakers, use you water hose and sprayer and carefully wash out the coil.
If all this fails, and your amp draw is good, change your breakers. Hope this helps , stay cool.. Mark

In UNO, I put down a plus 4 card, pick a color I DO have in my hand..the next player picks the challenge, it's successful an I ge the cards. Why? I'm not lying I have the color. Why am I getting...

The way UNO works is, if you put down a "draw four" card, you can make the color anything you want, you may want to pick a color tht's not in your hand if, you think the next player could go out if you pick a color you know he/she has. The color could change before it gets back to you anyway. Maybe the game has changed dramatically or, these are rules i'm noy aware of but, a draw four card not only makes the next person draw four but, it also skips them. In the event the person after the player you skipped, reverses play, you could get a draw card laid on you.
This link shows what cards you get with the UNO game, and the rules. It is true that if you play a draw four card when ypu had the color in play in your hand you can be challenged and if, say the color on the table is red, you have a red card in your hand, if you throw the draw four when you have a playable "red" card in your hand, you can be challenged and made to draw four, but, if you do not have a red card in your hand, you can call any color you want, even if you don't have the color in your hand.

Need to reverse letters for print on tee shirts

  1. MS Word Instructions:
  2. Click the AutoShape (AutoShapes: A group of ready-made shapes that includes basic shapes, such as rectangles and circles, plus a variety of lines and connectors, block arrows, flowchart symbols, stars and banners, and callouts.), picture (picture: A file (such as a metafile) that you can ungroup and manipulate as two or more objects or a file that stays as a single object (such as bitmaps).), WordArt (WordArt: Text objects you create with ready-made effects to which you can apply additional formatting options.), or clip art (clip art: A single piece of ready-made art, often appearing as a bitmap or a combination of drawn shapes.) (The thing you want to duplicate.)
  3. Click Copy default.aspx?assetid=za060446791033 and then click Paste default.aspx?assetid=za060446821033.
  4. On the Drawing toolbar, click Draw, point to Rotate or Flip, and then click Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical.
  5. Drag and position the duplicate object so that it mirrors the original object.
Note You may need to override the Snap-To-Grid option to position the object precisely. To do this, press ALT as you drag the object.
This actually sounds easier to me than buying and loading some extra program. Dale

Bad contrast with scanner


That's the way HP does things. There are no rheostats or pots to adjust. It's all done electronically now, with chips and things.

You never said how it does with color or greyscale photos or drawings.

As for the RGB=(64,64,64), that's about right for the scan picture settings and the mixed (text and graphics) setting, and is particularly true for color picture settings. Have you tried using the setting for drawings (or line art), specifically greyscale drawings? Usually the greyscale lineart or drawing setting will render black text. You might also try scanning with the settings set for Text. If the greyscale drawing settings or greyscale text settings do not produce black text, try reinstalling your software and drivers.

If the contrast stays the same for all settings after reinstalling the software and drivers, and if it doesn't scan color and greyscale pictures correctly, then it sounds like your scanner is going bad.

As for the scans you've already done, you can darken the text by taking it into a photo editor, such as Paint Shop Pro or Photo Shop, and adjust the contrast and brightness to get the effect you desire.

Can't display Clipart on Power Point

You may see this error message after installing Service Pack 2 (SP2) if you haven't installed Clip Art. The error only occurs when the Drawing toolbar is visible. MS is aware of the problem and is working on a hotfix but in the meantime, try this: * Hide the Drawing toolbar (choose View, Toolbars and remove the checkmark next to "Drawing". The Drawing toolbar is visible by default but once you hide it, it will stay hidden.
