pasting colour image onto BW
I am pasting a colour image onto a BW background. When I do this the image converts to BW. How do I prevent this from happening? I want to keep the background BW and the pasted images colour.
thanks
Simon

Convert your background image to RGB (it will remain gray): Image/Mode/RGB

Ha! Thank you!
