Hi!

I am using PSP 7 and wondered if anyone knows how to change a picture (specifically my ultrasound photo) to a certain color, ie, baby blue or baby pink? I have tried playing around with hues and palettes and I am not getting the result I want. Thanks!

I use Photoshop, not PSP, but look in your layers palette for your blending options. There should be one called color. Duplicate your photo, fill the duplicate with the color you want, then change the blending mode to color. I hope that helps!

i use photoshop, but i'll tell you how i'd do it and maybe psp will be similar? i dunno, i've never used it.

i would create a new (blank) layer above the u/s photo. then choose the color you want (pink, blue, etc) and fill that blank layer with the color -- i use the paint bucket tool for this. then i just change the blending mode of that layer to "color." you'll probably have to try a few shades of blue, pink, etc to get the effect you want. HTH

LOL...too slow.

That was a huge help! I was able to do pretty much what I was aiming for. I couldn't get the exact "hue" of either color I wanted but close to it. Thanks so much ladies for pointing me in the right direction!
