    Hello,

    I have a logo that was created several years ago and I can't re-create
    it. You can see the logo/name at www.usernomics.com in the upper left
    corner that says USERNOMICS.

    I want to change the yellow/orange trim color to white. But I want to
    retain everything else. I only have the image as a .gif and I can't
    manipulate it. I also don't know what font was used.

    Does anyone have an idea of how this can be re-created?

    Thanks a lot,

    Bob

    Place cursor on logo, right click COPY.
    Open Photoshop, CTRL N.
    Paste into new document.

    Proceed from there.

    You could use the Color Replacer. Use the first eyedropper to select
    the first color, and the second eyedropper to add colors to be
    replaced by white. To get white, just slide all the "Replacement"
    sliders to the right. To get more or less replacement, slide the
    "Fuzziness" slider back and forth. Make sure "Preview" is selected if
    you want to see the results as they are applied.

    CDX:)

  4. This is pretty straightforward using the replace colour tool.
    Image>Adjust>replace colour.
    using that method, it took me about 30 seconds to produce this.

  5. Do you think you could possibly be a bit more unhelpfull?
    No, I thought not.
    If you have nothing constructive or helpfull to add, then why don't you keep
    your smart ass mouth shut.

    Your response was entirely unhelpful yet you wasted everyone's time with
    lambasting another idiot for doing exactly what you've done. What makes
    you think you're more special, fuckstain?

    while replace color will work you will not get a nice sharp edged letter and
    the image will look deteriorated. On a gif those options will be greyed out
    so you must change mode to RGB or other first.


    If you plan to use this logo in any other document or larger sizes for
    future I suggest re-doing it
    YOU need to identify the font FIRST
    (whatdafont.com)

    file new (make it in RGB mode) use decent resolution like 300-400 in case
    you need it bigger later for print etc
    fill with 50% gray

    type the text, (open character palette)

    use kerning etc for spacing the letters so close
    put the text layer on 0% fill
    it will look invisible don't worry
    click the little f at bottom of layer palette
    choose bevel -emboss
    tick the down box
    pillow emboss? or other to get the look of impression
    then use stroke
    change it to white, change thickness

    DONE

    Why don't you go **** yourself.

  10. Why should I?
    I offered the OP some constructive helpfull advice.
    You on the other hand wasted everyones bandwidth with your smart ass
    comments.
    You tried to get a cheap laugh by making the OP look stupid, but the sad
    reality is that you only succeeded in making yourself look like a total
    dickhead.
    Now you're angry because I've drawn attention to your dickheadedness, and
    you're lashing out at me.
    The result is that the world now percieves you as an immature and childish
    dickhead.
    If I was you, I'd quit now before things get any worse.

    So, in answer to your question...Why don't YOU go **** yourself.

  12. Thank you for proving my point.
    This is exactly the reason why school computers should not have internet
    access enabled.
    Now, shouldn't you be getting on with some work before teacher looks over
    your shoulder and realises what you've been doing?

    Yes, a point was proven, now go look in the mirror, sonny.

  15. The point is that you are a jackass, and you continue to expose yourself as
    such.
    Lets look at the facts.
    A newbie comes in here looking for help and/or advice with a genuine query.
    Instead of offering help or advice, you choose to act like a smart ass and
    give him a nonsense answer, in the hope that it will make him look dumb and
    make you lok witty.
    It failed, and you ended up looking like a dickhead.
    I pointed this out to you and you got upset because you felt exposed.
    You responded with childish abuse and insults instead of formulating an
    intelligent and reasoned response, thus reinforcing the impression that you
    are a childish immature dickhead.
    Now, your refusal to back down and accept that you were behaving like a
    smart ass dickhead only serves to strengthen the opinion that you are an
    arse.

    I would be deeply surprised if any of the regulars in this newsgroup see
    things your way.
    I would welcome any comments from anyone who feels you are a victim here.

    Tell me now, in all honesty.
    Do you believe your advice to the OP was helpfull?
    Do you believe you addressed his query with a relevant answer or suggestion?
    Or were you just trying to be a smart ass?

    If you believe your advice was helpfull or usefull, then I would suggest you
    have no idea what you are talking about, and are completely clueless when it
    comes to using photoshop.

    Either way, my point has been made. It has been made clearly. And it has
    been made repeatedly.
    That point is that you are a dickhead smart ass who thinks he can make
    himself look witty by making others around him appear foolish.
    Unfortunately for you, it has backfired this time.

    I see no reason to continue making this same point, and by extension, I see
    no reason to continue arguing with a half-wit like you.
    Goodbye.

    You sure do use a lot of words to say nothing at all....

    But what is the reason why you can't just re-type the word "USERNOMICS"
    using the exact same font, then applying some effect to have the same
    effect?

  19. Well, since there is no other colour anywhere else, I would say the
    simplest trick would be to just de-saturate the image. (In photoshop,
    set IMAGE > MODE to RGB or GREYSCALE)

    If you set to RGB you will have more control... then you simply use
    IMAGE > ADJUSTMENTS > HUE AND SATURATION, bring your Saturation slider
    right to zero. After that, Levels or Curves could be used to tweak
    it...

    If you set to GREYSCALE, you will need to use levels.

    Colour Replace is nifty, but a bit OTT for this job in particular.

    Thanks Kat. I will do this for future use. I would like to have a good
    copy around.

    I was able to get the effect I wanted by playing with the
    brightness/contrast. You can see the result at usernomics.com. The
    USERNOMICS logo was a dark orange/yellow and could not be seen well.
    Now it has a brighter orange/yellow/white appearance. Just the trim
    part.

    Thanks again,

    Bob
