How to change the color of the background used for buttons on the web.


I am in the dark ages with photoshop 7 but it should do basic stuff like this..
I am trying to change the color of the background used for the buttons, however it is set on a partial invisible background.. it is fully rectangular but shaped so that the visible part is not exactly rectangular. when I tried to change the color, the entire bar including the invisible part chaged color. Can someone help me with this to get on the right path.. I have included the psd and the actual image.. I want to go from black to dark blue #000086

any help in changing the color or giving me tips on how to do it with the psd would be greatly appreciated.

How to change size of image?

Hi- I'm a complete newbie at PS as of today, so forgive me if this a completlely dumb question. I did a search, but couldn't find the answer I'm looking for. I'm trying to adjust the size of a specific image after the initial placement. I have tried "image size" and adjusted either by pixel size or percentage- but each time I do this it just adjusts the size of my entire canvas- not the individual photo I'm trying to adjust. I've tried everything and just can't figure it out. Please let me know how to do this! I'm getting a book soon- but in the meantime I'm trying to figure it out myself or via google. I have PS CS2, version 9.

OMG-->need to change from inches to cm to mm....

Confused I am I have a raw image of a person. Being raw, it's in inches, 13.6 in by 13.587 in @ 300 ppi. I need to crop it down to her head and shoulders, and make it so that the image is 45 mm tall, and 35 mm wide, and her face has to be (from her hair line to her chin) 32 mm. I can do this no problem when it's in inches, because CS defaults to inches. Now, going from inches to cm to mm......ARGHHHHH!!!!!! Not my cup of tea. I need to crop the photo, and drag it onto another canvas when I have guide lines set exactly 32mm apart (top to bottom) and keep recroping the photo until her face is 32mm (hence the guide lines). My problem is that when I crop at 35 x 45 mm, then drag it onto the new canvas (also in mm) it is WAY to large, as if in to say after I crop it, the dimensions default back to inches, even though I cropped it by mm, and the new canvas it cm. I'll post some screen shots. No picking on my stick figure drawings, as I'm sure this lady wouldn't like her mugshot posted all over the net

Why so many way to change the color of a photo in photoshop?

I got a good book telling how to use photoshop. Anyways I've noticed they use soooooooooooo many way to change the overall color in a photo. Like Image -> Adjust Levels -> Choosing a channel. Image -> Adjust -> Color Balance. Image -> Adjust -> Hue/Saturation. Image -> Adjust -> Selective Color. Image -> Adjust -> Channel Mixer. I've alos noticed when you make a new layer, you can choose a color. Is this just a marker for you Cause it doens't seem to affect the photo. Image Why does photosohp have so many way to change the hue Are certain ones better than others Thanx

Can I change a color globally by changing a swatch?

I'm working on a web site and I have to change either the color of the nav bar or the color of about a third of the graphics (they're not photos; they're AIs colored with Pshop, and they're almost all two-color images). I really like the nav bar color, but it'd be a lot quicker to change that than to redo all the psds. Okies, so like this is really a newb q. Is there a way I can change the color in a whole mess of psds at once Just askin'.

CS5 'save as' changes my file names - Just normal tiff / jpgs... not save for web!

Does anyone know why photoshop deletes part of my file name if i try to save it in a different location to the one it opens from I guess it's something to do with the fullstop / point in the filename, but i have no idea how to stop it doing this! Basically, I have objects numbered 'A24.1 front', 'A24.1 back', A24.2 front' etc etc, and it's changing them all to 'A24'. I've been tearing my hair out trying to find any setting that might stop this happening (the file names cannot be changed) but i'm having no luck.... and as normal the adobe forums and help sites are useless! I'm using CS5 with windows vista 64bit. Screen shots attached to illustrate problem.

CS2 installed but drive name changed

! My C Drive boot sector recently failed due to motherboard problems, causing me to have to install another hard drive to have an operating system to run. I am still using my old hard drive for data, only now it is renamed as my F drive. When I try to run PSCS2 off my F drive I get the message "Your Adobe Photoshop user name, organization, or serial number is missing or invalid. The application cannot continue and must now exit." Adobe's website says I need to reinstall PS, BUT I cannot find my install disks! I have a legal copy of CS2 and I cannot find it after scouring the house and it's nooks and crannies. Does anyone know if there is a data or text file that I could go into behind the scenes to tell PS to point to the F drive instead of the C Drive I did this for my Quickbooks software, but can't figure out if PS has such a capability.
