I need some quick photoshop help

A while back I took a picture of a warning sign with my phone, and have been wanting to make it into a warning sign for my lab desk. The only problem is that I don't have any good image editing programs on my computer. If someone could take this image, and just make the black parts (electricity monster and man) black, and the backgroud white (or any other non-black color) that would be great.

There is a link to the picture in my post, though it doesn't seem to be standing out too well. Try clicking the part about "I took a picture of a warning sign with my phone".

done. got an address i can send it to?
i've crop the picture of everything but the man and the monster, and it's totally black and white.
if anything you'll need to resize it before you print it.

If you've got a picture you want to send, RogerMcAllen@aquariumadvice.com . Thanks for all of your help. Hopefully my desk will be well protected from those darn undergrads.

Bring out the gimp... (free photoshop quality image editing program)

http://www.gimp.org/

Downloads For windows:
GTK: (required)
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/g...1.zip?download
Program:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/g...p.zip?download


install the GTK, then the program. It works very similar to photoshop. Has many of the same tools. But it's free, legally.
