RE: Add black shade to my photo
Hi brody31,

Are you referring to the black are along the bottom? or the tint of the photo?
If you mean the area at the bottom,
1. Create a new layer above the photo layer
2. Choose the Rectangle Select tool
3. Make a rectangle selection the size and position you want on the new layer.
4. Fill that selection with Black by setting your FG color to Black and then dragging it to your selection.

if you mean the tint of the whole image,
1. Create a new layer above the photo layer
2. Set the FG colour to Black.
3. Create a new layer above your photo layer with the Layer Fill Type option set to Foreground color.
4. Adjust the new layer's Opacity until you achieve the tint you desire.

RE: Add black shade to my photo
I can't seem to find where to change opacity. For some reason, all of my tool boxes never open. How would i change the opacity using the files from the top?
