Want to add background color to my yahoo homepage as easy as possible


With XP, you right-click, click "Use as Background".

With Windows 7, right-click the page in an area where the preferred background is shown. Click "View page Info", click the "Media" button, select the Background image and it should show in the lower pane. If not, cursor up or down till the preferred image is shown., click "Save As..", change to the preferred folder and save the file with a preferred title. Withing Display Properties, locate and change the Background image to the saved file.
Even finding the proper area to change the background image depends on your Windows version.

Inställning? finepix_s5000_digital_camera When I print an image on paper that I have taken, I get a gray background. Not white. Why? Please help me! Thanks, Bibbi


Not really a solution yet but we really don't know if the problem is with your camera or your printer. If you can, remove your memory card and take it to your nearest photo retailer (I like WalMart). Ask the technician there to help you make a photo of the offending image. If the background is gray on the new photo, the problem is with your camera. If not, it is likely your printer.
Your camera may have settings that can be adjusted as well.
Also, if you're using standard copy paper instead of photo paper to print your picture, there may be color issues as well.
Hope this helps.

Want a B&W copy from colored sheet of paper w/o dark background.


It's never going to be perfect (unless the background is quite light in colour), because the copier basically "sees" the coloured background as "gray", and the darker the background the more "gray" it looks. Try setting the original type to "photo" mode, and then adjusting the exposure a little lighter/darker....that's all you can basically do.

Need to change backgroud color of photo


This really depends on what the background looks like. In all of these cases, however, a good tip is to copy the background layer so that you have a duplicate layer to work upon. This way you can always mask off some of the top layer if you go too far, or mess up too badly, without losing all your work.

That being said, the first step is to select the background. You might try to start with the magic wand if the background is easy to tell from the foreground. Make sure to check/uncheck "Contiguous" if all of the background pieces are or are touching. Also adjust the sensivity of the majik wand (it goes from 0 to 255. 255 is going to select everything, so I'd start with a tolerance of maybe 50 and go from there.)

If the background tends to merge seamlessly, you can try to select the background with the Lasso tool. Just start draggine the lasso tool along the background that you will want to change. You can take it in small chunks as long as you hold down the "shift" key when you start your next selection.

Once you have the background of the photo selected, a good idea is often to make the selection just a little bit blurry so that when you change the color the borders won't be too abrubt which tends to look a bit jarring and unreal.

A good way to do this is "feathering" the selection by 5 or 10 pixels (depending on the size and resolution of your photo).

To do this SELECT>FEATHER and choose between 5 or 10 as your feather radius.

Then on to the final step, changing the color of the background.

I'd tend to use IMAGE>ADJUST>HUE/SATURATION.

Once you have the Hue/Saturation dialog box up, click on the "colorize" button and make sure the "preview" button is also checked.

I usually start by increasing the "saturation" slider, this allows more color into the selection, and enables you to see the effects of the top slider, "Hue"

Slide the "Hue" slider until you get the approximate color you want the background of the photo to be. You can then use the middle slider to add more or less of that hue, and the bottom slider to adjust the lightness and darkeness.

Hope this helped,

Philip

Gray backround


Does your scanner software give the option to choose different modes...grayscale, color, black & white?? This sounds like it's scanning in grayscale....if you can change it to black & white, the background should remain white.
