Created the following image (or rather, just changed the text to Digital Electronics). How to change the white color of the background of the picture to a suitable color or picture (image) (specifically with the indication of Photoshop tools or possibly using markup without photoshop)? I'm new, so please don't ban me

The PNG image you posted already has a transparent background. So all you need to do is to place that image on a layer above another image, or create a new background layer below and fill it with a colour.

If you want to use the logo on a web page, since the PNG already has transparency, any background you choose on a web page will show through the transparent areas.

  • How does to place that image on a layer above another image? How does create a new background layer below and fill it with a color? I am a newbie, so please point by point to explain how to perform the above steps Commented Feb 22, 2020 at 13:32
  • Open an image to use as a background, and then click File > Place - and choose the PNG logo you made. Or to add a new layer, click Layer > New > Layer. You can click and drag the layers in the layers panel if you want to move them up or down. Use Edit > Fill to fill a layer with colour. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of layers in Photohsop, it might be worthwhile having a look for some beginner tutorials on youtube. There are lots!

  • I work in the Russified version of Photoshop and in it in the File menu there are only 2 items with the word Place: 1. Place embedded ..., Place related. Which of these two points should be used to insert my PNG file as a foreground? Commented Feb 23, 2020 at 11:12
  • You can use either, it doesn't matter which one you choose. In English these options are Place Embedded, or Place Linked. If you place a linked file, it will be placed as a Smart Object in Photoshop on a new layer, If you place it embedded, it will embed the image within the photoshop document as a new layer. If you don't understand these basics you really need to take some beginner tutorials.
