Simple need, I think, but I forget how to do it.
I scanned a typed letter, black letters on a white background. It is now a PSD file, with the whole thing as a background layer.
I want to color the background yellow, to simulate an old manuscript. How?
One way is to put the "color" layer over the text and change the layer blend mode of the "color" layer to Multiply.
Nothing wrong although changing the background layer to layer 0 really makes no difference.
You could also use the opacity slider for a more subtle color, as required.
If you want to experiment with different colors simply double-click on the color thumbnail on the fill layer.
I think Jeff also added a pattern layer to give some texture but that’s optional.
