    Hi I love this template..Graphene..How can I change the color of the background? The original background is black with a pattern on it. I would like to keep the pattern but change the color to green. How do I do this. When I use a color overlay in photoshop all i do is cover up the pattern and its the pattern i want to keep. Any ideas?

    Moved to Support. Please post in the correct section next time.

    To customise the background, go to WP Admin > Appearance > Background.

    Don’t use a color overlay. Instead, use the “Colorize” option. In CS1, it’s under “Hue and Saturation”. I’ve no idea where it is now. I use GIMP.

    Something like this?

    its still under hue an saturation, Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation then check colorize, then mess with the sliders to get the color you want
