Hi everyone
A friend of mine designed a logo for me on photoshop and sent me the file. I can't seem to be able to link it to my site because it was edited in photoshop. I need to save it under RGB 16bit but I don't have photoshop :( I tried doing it in paint but colors changed!
Is there any other way to do it? (my friend is on holiday otherwise I would have asked him :)
Thanks
Rola

Hi, Rola,

You can use Picnik to edit the file.

1. On the picture that you wish to edit, click on "Edit" on the top-left corner of your Picture Widget. A dialog box will open up. Click on the "Edit With Picnik" button and you will go through to the photo editing site, Picnik.com.

OR

Click on the "File Manager" button. Click on the picture you wish to edit and then on the "Edit Picture" button at the top. This will also take you through to the photo editing site.

* Picnik may take a while to load but it's worth the wait!

2. Once Picnik is open, use their picture editing tools to adjust your image. You can choose to crop, color, resize, etc.

3. When you've finished editing your picture in Picnik, click on "OK".

4. Then click on the "Save to Yola" button and this will replace your original image in your File Manager.

Please note: If you have edited your picture through the Picture Widget, the picture on your page will also be updated with the new changes. However, if you have gone through the File Manager, you will need to re-add your newly edited picture to your page.

Another alternative is Gimp at gimp.org which is a free download.

Hi Rola,
There is a freeware equivalent to Photoshop at www.gimp.org. I've used it for converting image files, and it works well. There are also reviews of the program online. If you are concerned about security or performance issues with freeware, you can probably find inexpensive old versions of Photoshop at used book stores.
Happy hunting,
-Nate

Thanks for your suggestions. I tried them all and I converted the logo in GIMP to RGB and saved it but it is still not displaying! :((
