Hi Skitalez: Here's how I played with the background in photoshop. First, in general, I made a selection of the background. In the presence of this active selection, I chose an Adjustment Layer, in this case, "Color Balance". When an Adjustment Layer is added on top of an image layer, a mask is automatically attached to the Adjusment Layer based on the current active selection. What is selected is white, and will be changed. What is not selected is black and won't be changed.... so, moving the sliders in Color Balance only affects the area that is white (the selection).
Here's some graphics to illustrate the process sin Photoshop I've just described.
The dotted lines shown below is the selected area (painting's background):
Next, I selected an adjustment layer from the list:
Note in the screen capture below how there is a black and white mask beside the Color Balance Adjustment Layer. Any adjustments made with the sliders in Color Balance only affects the white area:
Have fun in Photoshop playing with your designs! Cheers!
