Hello Experts,

I'm not exactly familiar with all the features in Photo shop 6.0.  Here's what I need.  I have a piece of clip art with a color in the back ground that I need.  I need to fill in the rest of the picture so it's all the same color.  I thought there was an option in photo shop to kind of grab a sample of a color for later use?  Any suggestions?  I hope I explained that correctly.

    Select the eyedropper tool and click on the color you want to use. The foreground color wil become the color you selected.

    Ok, I got the color I needed, how can I "Fill" a box with that color?

    To fill the background, create a new layer,put it behind your clip art layer. Then make sure your foreground color is the color you need. Once the color is all set, select the layer you just made, then Edit>Fill>Use: Foreground, Mode: Normal, Opacity 100%.
