    3. thank you Woody...after erasing I saved it as a PNG file, because a video on youtube told me to do that. OK, I'll resave it....then can I go back and just change that white to another color> Yes, I do cloning all the time. I haven't done what you have described, however. I wish I could do all those things. How does a person learn to do those things? I'm not a good one to read directions and then know what to do. But I use my PPPro all the time. Thank you, and the others, for you kind help.
