Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am trying to change background colour of a picture on Adobe Potoshop CS2. I selected a background which then showed a sparkling border around it. Then I tried selecting a colour from Swatch or from the Colour box and doing OK, but the colour of the selection does not change. How do I change colours of selections in Photoshop? Many thanks

How to change wallpaper on HP windows 8

After you click on the desktop app and can see your desktop (don't confuse it with the apps background, you can't change that), right click on it, chose "personalize" then in the window that comes up you'll see "Desktop Background" at the bottom and click it.
From there you can use the "Browse" button on the top to find images you want to use. You can choose multiple images to load and set how often they can change.

Load Applications Faster... Much Faster

Hello and Welcome to FixYa.
Another Trick, tested by me on Photo Shop CS2 and got amazing result.A MUST DO!!

NOTE:This switch does not work with all programs IT WORKS WITH MOST. If you complete Step 3 and get a 'target box invalid' message, just remove the /prefetch:1, Select O.K., and all will go back to normal.

For this example, I'm going to use Adobe Photoshop. If you use it, you know that it takes a little while to load; especially if you have extra fonts, brushes, etc...loaded that it needs to read. Well, were gonna make it faster along with any other program you wanna speed up.

STEP 1: Right click on the Adobe Photoshop or any other programs shortcut and select properties from the menu.

STEP 2: In the Target: Field add the /prefetch:1 switch to the very end of the path.

So originally, the Target Field shows:
"C:Program FilesAdobeAdobe Photoshop CS2Photoshop.exe"

You are going to make it show:
"C:Program FilesAdobeAdobe Photoshop CS2Photoshop.exe" /prefetch:1
There is a space between the " and the /

STEP 3: Select Apply and O.K.; or just O.K. is fine and your change will be applied.

Do share your Experience.
Concerned, Nooh

Test not showing when typing an email

Did you set the "font-colour" and the "background-colour" to be identical?

If you use Microsoft Word (or Notepad or Wordpad) to type in some text, and then select that text, and copy it to the clipboard, and then "paste" it into the "body" of the E-mail window, does that text show up?
