I need photoshop help!

I have a cake next week and the customer wants an island style tattoo design on it. I have a way to do it, and the design here, but I need someone to fill in the white bits with mint green.

If anyone can help with this, can you give me your email address and I'll send it along.

It's times like these I wish I had photoshop and may need to invest in it sooner or later.

Basically it's a black tattoo which is going on a mint green cake, so I need to do the background of the tattoo mint green so I can then get an edible image printed and attach it to the cake.

Please help me. I'm dying here.

ugh I would have been able to do it before Creative Cloud but here is the disadvantage of not going with piracy: Photoshop is currently uninstalled and would cost $$ to install. sorry ali

MS Paint is literally the full extent of my graphic design skills. I could make you a bitchin' sound effect to go with the tattoo, but... Hopefully someone can jump in.

I should be able to do this, i would use GiMP, which is similar to photoshop, but open source and therefore free. Theres a learning curve to it, but also with photoshop if you are not familiar with it.

Can you send a pic with the color you want too, I only three shades of green, dark, light and medium

I can probably do this if it doesn't work with the other two. Although if they can't do it, it's likely impossible.

Thanks guys. I've sent emails to foot and beest. With any luck between them I'll have what I need. A fb friend did one for me last night, but the black has discoloured a bit, so I think she just put a highlight over the whole page. If possible, the black needs to stay black.

I didn't Bruce. I usually get yours though. My server has been a pain lately though. Maybe that's it? Want me to send you the image?

Thanks everyone. Problem solved and now printed on edible icing ready for application to a cake next week.

I knew someone here would be able to help. Foot and Bruce, if you're ever in the area, stop in for a cupcake!
