This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Remove Background and change color of logo in Photoshop CC.

I am a beginner in photoshop. I want to remove black background from a logo, and change the color of the logo.
I read around how to remove background, but when I use magic wand and press delete I see a "fill" window.. when I press "ok" the background turns white. I also tried to select and press ctrl delete but it just turns background white from black without the fill window. I need to remove the background completely..can someone help please?

I'd like to import my portrait paintings into photoshop, in order to then print them onto a linen background, but without the ground / background. I have seen it achieved in fabrics for cushions, etc by Voyage or Jessica Zoob. How do I lift the painting off the background without cutting it out ... so that the paint stokes still appear to fade into fabric?

I'm looking to get rid of the background on a logo, however the detail of the logo is very intricate so it's almost impossible to use the Erase Tool without ruining it. Does anyone know how else I can rid of it please?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How to combine mulitple moon shots into one image.

I have been using Photoshop Elements for years, and now have PSE 10. Never occurred to me until now to ask. How do you combine images to create one photo? I took multiple pictures of the recent lunar eclipse and would like to show them in one photo as it goes thru the stages of the eclipse. I just cant get my arms around how to do this. So many solutions online, what is the easiest way to do this? Thank you.
