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!

That tutorial is a YouTube video. You can find a whole bunch of great video tutorials by searching "ScrapGirls" on YouTube.

You can also get the basics of recoloring ScrapSimple products in the free Scrap Girls Scrapsimple Instructions Handbook

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.

And while I'm posting so many times, I thought I'd just wave "hi" from a few hours up I-5. :)

I don't know if these would be any help to you or not, but here are a couple of PSP tutorials:

Recoloring and Enhancing Images Using Paint Shop Pro

If you are interested, there are more PSP tutorials in the University here: Digital Scrapbooking with Corel Paint Shop Pro (PSP)

Waving "Hi!" back April! When I read your first post I thought "gee I haven't seen April in a while!". So now I know why. Come back soon!

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!
