I assume you're using photoshop. If you are, or if you aren't (evil other programs), this should still apply in one form or another.

If you have your purple on a seperate layer, go to (and this is in photoshop) Image|Adjust|Hue/Saturation. Click the Colorize checkbox in the lower right corner, then play with the top slider to get a blue.

This changes the colors more effectively then what you did.

that's how I did the last two desktops - didn't affect that purple afterglow. http://forums.massassi.net/html/tongue.gif

I see what he means... the front two feet, the one is raised above the other one, but when you look at it at the right angle, it looks like theres an extra foot behind it.

Moo.
