acctim -

There seems to be some confusion here.

The coloured baby picture picture has to do with the first posting in this thread made steveasub - see his posting dated Feb 1, 2006, 10:25 PM at page 1 of the thread.

Faststone (Faststone Image Viewer is its full name) is an image viewing and manipulation program a bit like ACDSee and Irfanview. I think it's better than either of them. It's free too, though the guy who wrote it does appreciate people sending him a donation.

No problem - & welcome to Steve's Digicams.

Apropos the change of the baby picture from monochrome to colour - I tried to use PS Elements to change the colour, but couldn't. But I found I could change the colour with Faststone so long as I applied the skin coloured tint to the entire picture.

After I'd done that I used Photoshop to cut the outline of the baby from the all-pink picture, and paste it onto the new background. The first effort produced a pink image of the baby that was so degraded that it looked like coarse sand. Maybe it was because I'd saved it in BMP format. So I tried different formats & I think the one that worked was TIFF. Then I was able to save the combination as a JPEG file.

Another of the many things I like about Faststone is that it includes an "Edit with External Program" command.

I know this thread is six years old, but I wanted to give this another shot. This was a challenge, and I'm not happy with it, but for fifteen minutes it was fun.

1. When FS is set to 'windowed view' & is displaying a picture, the line at the top includes a place to click on 'colors'.

2. Click on 'colors' & then it displays a box that includes "Adjust colors". Click on that and then the picture is displayed with some boxes at the bottom that let you add & subtract Red and Green and Blue, and that let you adjust saturation and hue.
