I'll try. OK, the first black and white picture is a Brush, and the colour picture is not a brush, however I did use that same colour picture of Simba to make the Simba brush.
OK, I think you once said you had Photoshop, so you should know that there are different brushes you can use to make different effects. Even with the basic brushes that come with Photoshop, you get quite a lot of different brushes. to chose from. The best way I can describe a brush is that it's the tool you use to paint with in photoshop. You can also go to numerous sites and download brushes for Photoshop, that can really give you some wonderful effects, or you can make your own. In Simba's case I made a brush out of a transparency of him. When you make a brush, you can make it any colour you want. I played it safe with the black and white picture because I wanted it not to look like a brush, but a black and white photo. Now the backgrounds in both pictures are made with numerous brushes that I have installed in my Photoshop program. I'll make a Nakita brush and I'll show you Nakita in several colours so you'll see.
