Is it possible to isolate all colors except the black colors on this pattern?

First off, I just want to thank you for taking a look at this.

I'm not great with photoshop (I can only use the paint tool)... how can I turn the brown areas pure white and only leave the black words and lines? I tried to use the paint tool to "paint" the brown areas white but it takes hours! Any possible way to change only the brown paper so when i print out this piece it doesn't print the brown part (the part of the paper).

I hope i am being clear, I don't know the technical words...basically I just want the black texts and black lines without the brown paper colors (make it white instead)...someone please teach me...=[

Something like this?

If so it is a 10 second job by adding a levels adjustment layer and dragging the right hand slider to the left.

...HA! I just did the same thing on Shanghai Tower!!! Classic!...
So you did! :thumbsup:

I noticed though that you didn't have the B&W as an adjustment layer....is there any specific reason for that?

It keeps a layer out of the layers panel, which is always a good thing, but just wondered if there was any other benefit besides tidiness?

Sorry for the delay.

It is, in fact, for tidiness.

I think it's a product of my workflow habits.

I very often duplicate the image layer of a photo (for work purposes) and work on the copied layer, instead of piling up layer masks.

LOL....fair enough!

I know what you mean about habit, I often do the same thing regardless of whether its needed or not.....this was one of those rare moments where I actually didn't duplicate the original....its only adjustment layers so no need...and I remembered! :rofl:

Thanks for the reply....very much appreciated.

Regards.
