How to lighten picture but keep lettering dark
« on: February 09, 2020, 09:18:59 PM »
This is one for you computer experts out there.  ;)

 :helpneededsign:
With the picture below, I want to lighten the background, but darken, (or at least not lighten), the lines and words. Whilst I like to think of myself pretty good with programmes like MS Office, I have never done much with programmes that alter pictures. Can any one give me some pointers please?

David.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Try playing with contrast in a photo editor

[edit]
I found a black & white filter effect on Lenovo Photo Master on this laptop (never bothered to try this software before)
