    Hey,

    is it possible to give a color in a photoshop file the paper color? I know you can do it in indesign. What I want to do is paste one scanned drawing over another in indesign. I made the background of both drawings transparant. But now you see 1 image through the other. So what i want to do is change the color transparant to the paper color in photoshop. Is that possible? It would make things easier. I use cs6. I've been searching on the net for an answer but couldn't find one. I hope this is the right place to post.

    Thanks,
    madrat27

    Are you familiar with Layers and Masks in Photoshop?

    It sounds to me like an issue with Masking.

    If you get stuck, just let us know.

    But if you understand Layers and Masks, you can rule the world.

    Good luck.
