Question by Hahaha: How do you make the background black in Photoshop cs4 extended?
I do not like the background, and i just want to make it black. I have done it before i just cannot remember how to!
A picture by the way.


Answer by iDesign71
Depending on what’s easier to select, select either the background area; or the the bit you want to keep and inverse the selection (menu Select>Inverse) so you have all the background area selected.

Go to menu Edit>Clear, then Edit>Fill and select black as your fill colour.

I have photoshop cs5 and when i go to use the brush tool its okay and comes out with the colour i want but if i go over a bit ive already done it turns white.
am i doing something wrong?
im knew to photoshop so dont know much about it,


Answer by Sandeep Thakur
what I think is that you are using color mixer brush tool.

there as 3-4 brushes under brush category. Using color mixer brush makes easy to mix colors with each other but it has some problems with the document boundaries.

If you brush nearby the document boundaries then it may give different color…

try using normal brush….

I downloaded some watercolor paint brushes and they aren’t showing up when I go to use them in Gimp. Somebody please help me I’m going insane!

Q&A: Photoshop Elements brush?

Question by Alina: Photoshop Elements brush?
I was wondering how you get that brush that makes it so when you write something it duplicates it and draws it in revers on the other side. Please help, thanks.


Answer by Key
Brushes in photoshop are just stamps. You could get a butterfly stamp, a flower stamp, whatever really but that stamp will always be the same as when you made it. So if you wanted to have text as a brush, you could do that but you can’t change words.

But, you can use the text tool and type what you want, then go to the layers tab to your right and right click on the finished text layer and select “duplicate layer”. Then with the new text layer highlighted go to the menu bar at the top and go to the “edit” tab and go to “transform” and then click “flip horizontal” Then just use the move tool (hit “V” on your keyboard to activate the tool [or it’s on your tool bar, that icon that looks like the mouse cursor with a cross thing next to it]) and then move the newly backwards text where ever you want

Q&A: How can I make a photoshop brush into a stencil?

Question by morocia: How can I make a photoshop brush into a stencil?
This is difficult to explain, and the answer is probably pretty simple but I’m going to try and ask anyways. I’m wanting to add some pretty realistic butterflies to a few of my pictures. (and other brushes, etc) However, I don’t want them to be just one or two colors. I need to know how to make the butterfly brushes into a stencil so I can fill the various fields in with different colors and textures. Is there an easier way to do this? I tried just using them with a black outline and then colored with various colors, blurred the colors…but they don’t look too realistic. Please help!


Answer by Vicc
This isn’t a stencil… but it SHOULD give you the same result

Every time you wish to have some different colour, blur, textures for your butterfly etc create a new layer..

and then go to Edit blending options if you have a list of Textures click on the one you want and use it.

If you want a different colour just choose a different colour
and create a new layer for blurring it. if you only one in particular blurred.

I hope i helped
