Coloring Templates

What's the best way to color the gray templates/embellishments, particularly if I want it to be a light color, such as yellow? By using the Colorize function, the end result still has a gray cast to it.

 

Thanks for any ideas!

We had a great tutorial by one of our designers in the newsletter a while back, featuring Yellow colorization of ribbon/bow embellishments; I haven't been able to find it yet. What I do remember is after you click colorize, adjust the blending mode for the color layer. The Lighten group: Lighten, Screen, Color Dodge, Linear Dodge and Lighter Color were the best blending modes for color like Yellow. Push the Saturation and Lightness sliders up, too.

 

Hope this helps!

Just noticed you asked about Paint Shop Pro... I think you should be able translate some of the techniques. We used to have more PSP users here, but many of them moved to PSE & PS to take advantage of the Styles and Actions available.

I've been home, just not on the forums as much because I had those pesky stitches in my hand. It is way easier to type with them out!

I really meant that I am just a few hours up I-5 from Barb who is in Eugene. :)

Waving "hi" up I-5 back at you! I couldn't find the YouTube video by myself even though I spent quite some time looking for it. Thanks for the link!
