Did that. Wasn't sure what kind of image I needed so chose a simple one. I do not have any pictures of wonderful little battle figures...

Ok -- let's work with this. First, your two midpoints are much too dark. Take a look at a normal black to white luminosity scale and try to get those point to match that. We'll get this part right first then we'll move to the next stage!! This is fun, solving problems and figuring it out.

Just click on one of those points and the color thing will pop up, I want you to make both of them brighter (without increasing saturation). In fact Desaturate both colors a little bit while you are at it and then post result!!!!

good - now create a blank layer on top of it, and set the blending mode to "color". Then double click in the area just to the right of the name (I called mine "color layer") -- inside the same box, and you will see the dialog come up. At the bottom, find "underlying layer" and split the left most tab and slide it over. You can move the tabs by just clicking on it and sliding it over -- you split the tab by holding the Alt key.

Did it. Is there something in particular I'm aiming for with all these little half-tabs?

BTW You're a hero Piet, for putting up with us. You have two of us in your class right now.

LOL -- you got it!!! What those tabs will do is that when you color over the darker spots, less of your color will come through. In all cases the colors will mix with your gradient map which will apply a touch of blue to darks and a touch of warm to the lights.. Let's give it a shot, pic a color and paint it onto your color layer.

edit -- after you have painted on the color, play with that slider and you will see what I mean..

On the background layer? Or the color gradiant layer?

LOL --- NO!!

Paint on the layer you have just created. The one you called "Layer 1" - the one on the very top.
