mode to RGB.

Properties and rename this layer to Background.
Click on your foreground color to set this
color. Here, I set my colors as H:200, S:75, B:100 (You can change
these values according your color preference. If you want a darker
blue, set S to a higher value and for lighter set it to a lower
value. For B, the higher the number the lighter the color.) Click on
OK to close that window after you’re selected the color.
