    I'm trying to change the color of an element from a kit and can't figure it out. Can anyone help me?

    Second question - how do you make an element from a scanned item? Like if I want to put in a ticket stub or something. I don't want to photograph it because it'll look like a photo and not the actual ticket.

    Cass - I am furthest thing from a digi scrapper, but couldn't you just scan and manipulate it like you would a photo?

    I don't think so because the backround of the scan would show.

    I just scanned this ticket and manipulated it in Paint, so I am not sure what you mean by the background.

    You should be able to crop the background out no problem.

    okay, thanks. I was more concerned with things that were not rectangular that wouldn't be easy to crop.

    Cass,
    Try laying the ticket on the scanner and then putting a piece of black cardstock on top. Then scan. Do you use photo shop? Use the magic select brush and select the black,select-inverse should choose only the ticket. Copy and paste into your file.

    Also, if you are in photoshop, you can use the straighten tool to straighten the photo, then crop a rectangle.

    Or use the magnetic lasso to select around the ticket.

    A ticket was just one of the items I wanted to use. I just used that as an example. I was also thinking of other type elememts like ric-rac or anything I'd want to use on a layout instead of buying the elements online. I would also like to change the color in photoshop elements.

    Woo Hoo! I figured out how to re-color an element. I had no idea how easy it would be.
    In Photoshop elements: open up an element, go to the edit pull down and select fill layer and then select "preserve transparency" under Blending and you can adjust the percentage. Then select your new color and it changes! It's just opened up a whole new world for me.
