I need to create a two-color poster for my choir's Christmas concert. I'm choosing the colors red and gold, and will liaise with the printer when it comes to printing about what specifically they will be to work best.
While I'm fine with a nice big, red background, and with adding gold text, I'm really struggling with how to add vectors with transparent background and faded foreground. I have a nice EPS stock image I bought a while ago with some musical notes on, but it's on a cream background with dark-brown staff-lines and musical notes. I've managed to fiddle with it in various ways in Photoshop (which I know pretty well) and Illustrator (which I don't know at all), but I cannot work out how to do it. What I'd love to do is just place a file in my InDesign document, and then change the stroke/fill color and the transparency.
All advice would be greatly appreciated! I have the full Creative Cloud, so can work with most Adobe apps, if required.
