darkening an image


I have got a paint shop pro image in .psp format. there is this image in raster format (outlines of cars and captured cursive texts) which are in shades of purple. is it possible to change this image to shades of blue, or preferably darkers shades of bluw.

What i would like to do is add black colour uniformly through the image (to each pixel) and get a darker image.

RE: darkening an image

Depending on which version of PSP it will be a little different, however: You can change the image darkness if you go the Adjust Menu and choose the "Brightness and Contrast" option.

There you can play around with the darkness of the image.

If you want o change the color to shades of blue, then the "Hue and Saturation" -> Colorize Option should do what you want. Also found in the Adjust Menu. again depending on your version this might change a bit.

Ignorance is not necessarily Bliss, case in point:
Unknown has caused an Unknown Error on Unknown and must be shutdown to prevent damage to Unknown.

adjust menu --> brightness and contrast option, it comes up with a number of options
