Topic: Background Image with Silhouette
Hello, heres something I'm trying to get me head around. I want to design a background for a webpage. I would like this background to be blue and then to have a silhouette of a ship but a faint silhouette. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or guide me in achieving this. I'm using the GIMP as my graphics program since I can't afford Photoshop.
So, how can I:
1.) Extract the image of a ship from one image
2. Use it on a background of blue
3. Increase opacity on the ship.
4. Compress the image to ensure it doesn't take too much time to load
I don't know if it's possible to just use a background color of blue for my body in CSS and then also add the image of the ship as a background as well.
