Thank you for any help.
I have a .png image from an Excel-style table that I have placed in an Illustrator file. All the cell backgrounds are white except those used to illustrate how to use the table. Those cells are shaded gray.
Using Illustrator, is it possible to change those gray cells to white? I have attached a crop from the image in the hope it will help you see what I'm trying to do.
I am an Illustrator novice, so I ask for patience in your solution. I have Photoshop on my computer as well in case that might be a more appropriate program, but I know less about Photoshop than I do about Illustrator.
Thank you for any kind assistance.

Illustrator cannot do tables.
You would be better off to create tables in InDesign, which has a table function.
If this is about editing the PNG, you could create a grey rectangle in Illustrator and apply the blend mode "multiply" to it. But editing PNGs is generally better done in Photoshop.

Openit in Photoshop and then go to Image > Adjust > Levels
and then move the slider like so:
Photoshop worked just like you said, and it's perfect! It worked exactly like I wanted. Thank you ever so much! I'd have never figured this out on my own.
Take care and be safe. Thank you again for your help!
