I have been given an iMac OS9 with Photoshop 6 on it and I am getting myself really frustrated and ratty because I can't figure out how I do stuff. For example changing a background colour, selecting bits in a photo to change the colour. Can anyone in Ephotozineland help me out or point me in the right direction.

Every bit of help is appreciated.

Try here

Or use a search engine, use the keywords "photoshop", "tutorial".

It's nothing to do with the iMac...Photoshop works the same on all computer types.

I agree with the last poster, it's all to do with learning to use Photoshop.

Fortunately there are dozens of sites full of tutorials (and bookshops full if you like reading paper better) about Photoshop.

It's fun, and a world all its own to explore. Enjoy the journey!

The software is the same but do you mean you are having trouble selecting things because of the one button mac mouse. If so, let me know if thats the problem and I'll help you out. If its not that, but actual software issues, unfortunately I wont know enough to help you.

I do not know much re: photoshop but I do use a Mac Powerbook---If you have a specific question--send it, I will try to help or find someone who can.

Heidilee, I do have a one button but I don't know whether that's the problem or just the plain and simple fact I don't know my way around photoshop to understand the instructions enough.

Well the one-button mouse can be a bit of a 'culture shock' until you get used to it, but if my experience is typical, I wouldn't think it would take long to get the hang of it.

It might be best if you could describe in reasonable detail one specific thing you're trying to do, then we might be able to get a better handle on whether it's a Photoshop or a Mac issue.
