lets begin with size
your page way to big for the web site just go
image > image size
from here you will see options but we don't care about that. we're looking at
resolutionchange that to 75 and then your page will insanity fit

also its best do this before you add your text


also don't have to use the magic wand to color line art or end up with that annoying whte stuff around the ages

use mulapley multiply on the line art and eying below it will become visible

before flatting for your best results everything has the be colored in

simple color change

there are lots of ways to do this

this is my starting image


theses are all found under that back and white sercle

selective color this just means you can tweak your colurs


i made his hair less green see what you can do

hue/saturation
hue changes the color
saturation makes things extremely full of color or back and white


the colors children i use this often


also see that white box drawing back in that box will hide eny un whanted changes

Not exactly true. If your basic image eg. was in bmp format that makes its resolution 72ppi. If you change it to 75, it will become even larger.

It should instead be said that at creation of a page you set size to 4 times as big as you need it and resolution to 300. THEN this trick will work. Otherwise it might be wonky.

Also I'd advise filling in the text BEFORE you shrink down and to save the psd file at this step. Remember you need to flatten the image before you shrink it down. The reason to that is if you ever need your page in bigger size, you don't need to fill in all the dialog again.
