curious little problem here.  i wonder if somebody more adept with 
Photodesk than i would be willing to write a how-to articlette for 
Archive magazine.

i recently designed a brochure for the music&flower festival at the 
Glastonbury church.  the cover photo shows a sea of daffodils in the 
churchyard and the church behind.  the original photo is in colour but 
i printed in mono.  i left it to the printer to choose the paper 
colour.  rather appropriately, he did it on bright yellow.

the finished result makes me think i could have produced a fine effect 
by making the daffodils WHITE in the original photo, so that in the 
mono print the bright yellow of the paper would come through.

is there a flaw in my thinking?  if not, what's the technique in 
Photodesk to do the colour tweak?

as i say, it would make a good article for the magazine if anybody 
wants to volunteer.  Archive could do with more tips on Photodesk.
