    I'm an occasional user of PS CS3 to put stuff in dreamweaver but I am short
    on skills. I want to put a photo image on my new web site as a background
    image in the banner. I want something mono colour and slightly diffused like
    a water mark on paper. The image I was going to use is a photo of the Forth
    Bridge and I want it to go unobtrusively behind my text. I can't find much
    on the web because I probably am not using meaningful key words so can
    someone please point me in the direction to start.

    Thanks,

    Use Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation and move the Saturation slider to the
    left to remove some of the color. Move the Lightness slider to the right
    to make the image lighter, like a water-mark, so that it won't intrude on
    the text.

    I have never been to the desert
    I hope to one day
    I live in a most tropical lush environment (FLORIDA) so to see the opposite
    would be novel

    what a rude ass
    Mike Russell gave you the perfect answer on post number one
    maybe ask your cat to read it to you


    Use Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation and move the Saturation slider to the
    left to remove some of the color. Move the Lightness slider to the right
    to make the image lighter, like a water-mark, so that it won't intrude on
    the text.

    are you related to that other PLONKED kid Babyfat?
