    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.

    Are you familiar with Layers and Masks in Photoshop?

    It sounds to me like an issue with Masking.

    thx I knew about layers. But not about masks. It seems I need to watch and read some more tutorials :)

    Thank you

    If you get stuck, just let us know.

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

    Good luck.

    When I started, it was with rubylith and an exacto knife!
