I'm sure many more questions are to come about photoshop, which is why i've numbered this (my first question) as (can anybody guess?) 1.

Anybody who can help is welcome to answer:

For a picture like this one Posted Image

How would I add a color tint to it (keep the background black, but make the fire red)?

Thanks.

If you use this code:

This is what you get:

I am going to assume that you have a "full" Photoshop (version 7, CS, CS2 or CS3) as opposed to any of the Elements versions as I do not know if you can do the same in elements.

Fire up Photoshop and open your image.

1) Go options bar>select>colour range.
2) When the dialogue opens, hover your mouse over a part of the image that is black.....the cursor will turn into an eyedropper tool. Click.
3) In the dialogue that then opens, you will see a black and white respresentation of your image, underneath which is a "fuzziness" slider. Move that left-right-left until you are happy that you have picked up all your black background but left the yellow etc of the flames. Click ok
4) That will have selected your black background, but you want the flames so go option bar>select>inverse.
    You now have the flames selected and seperate from the black background.
5) Now go options bar>image>adjustments>hue and saturation.
6) When that dialogue opens, you will see three sliders, hue, saturation and lightness. Push and pull the "hue" slider left and right until you get close to the colour that you wish the flame to be, and then make any fine adjustments you want with the saturation and lightness sliders.
When happy click ok.

Now you have your recoloured flames against a balck background. When I did yours earlier, it all took less than thirty seconds.
Try it, and let us know how you get on.
