    I have this site
    HTML:
    http://greengoods2go.com
    Now, on this site, to the left side of it where the categories are listed the color of it is transitioned from white to blue as it goes upward toward the top of the page. I know a simple thing in photoshop will fix this problem.. All I have to do is locate that category panel in the styles sheet in my shopping cart file and change that in photoshop to where it looks similar to what it already is but with a "green hue" to it. Seeing that my site is dedicated to going green, I think it would be a very nice appealing touch.


    Anyways, I found the file, tried to screw with it in photoshop but I cant get it to look the way it sort of fades and reflects from white to blue (if you visit my site you'll know what I mean). This time I want it to fade from white to green and have that reflection hue.. I m doing it for the ladies because most of them will shop from my site. I was wondering if there was an easy fix I could do in photoshop to go with the overall theme of my website..

    attached is my blue panel I need to figure out how to fix. Thank you all and much karma spread to you guys, Ive learned so much from this forum, Thnaks again

    I've taken the green from the subscribe button and recreated your image...

    Let me know if this is suitable or if it need changing (e.g. darkening/lightening)
    or let me know which "green" part of the site you want it matched too. :p

    The gif file that needs re-coloring is LeftBg.gif. It's not the actual color of the background of a table cell, it's an actual gif file. If you just swap out this with one that is colored the way you like, that should work. No need to mess with any style sheets. Hope that helps.

    You must of reuploaded to the wrong places as:

    Code:
    http://greengoods2go.com/templates/default/images/blue/LeftBg.gif
    Is still showing the blue one.

    If your having FTP issues, I see you have cpanel. Log in and click on file manager, then search for LeftBg.gif or navigate to the file. Then delete the file and upload the green one using cpanel keeping the name EXACTLY the same.

    This should work.

    Just for future reference, the easiest way to change the colour of something in Photoshop is to use the "Replace Colour" function Image>Adjustments>Replace Colour.

    Hope that helps.

    First off, thank you for that information, I find it very valuable. Secondly, I finally uploaded to the right directory, but now all I get is a small green square where it used to be a big "category panel"..

    You need to clear your cache - the green panel looked fine to me.
