Hey,
I was wondering if you are able to fill in an image of something completely black, I want to make a sign post with an image of a car inside it, and it has to be black.
Can this be easily done?
Thanx

Not exactly sure what you mean :? In Fireworks you can use "properties > effects > adjust color > color fill" on a selection to fill every pixel of a selection with a certain color (preserves transparancy)

yeah i know, it idnt very clear,
what I mean, is I have a picture of a car,
I want to make a sort of sign post with the picture of the car in it,
so I want to make the car all black to make it look more like a real sign post.
Is that any clearer?

alt + backspace should fill you selection with the foreground color, im not sure if thats what you want but it sounds like it. You could make a selection from the car and then use alt+backspace to make the selection the chosen color

Ah, your mention of photoshop wasn't there when I posted before :oops:

But yes, I see what you mean. Look for an effect called "color fill" in the effects menu. I'm a Fireworks user so I don't know where Photoshop keeps everything.
