I assume you use windows.
open the image in MS Paint. (Start Menu -> Programs -> Accessories)
in the tools you will find a air brush, it looks like a spray can.
choose that and color away where you want.

save your modified picture.
That's useful. Thanks.

Good idea
She also carries a high-mounted brake light, but I've never been outside to see it operate.
Both are now mandatory under the new regulations

netchef what is that switch for in front of the gear lever? rear windows ?

Nice color.

I presume the seat covers are stock.

Skoda could have given it a beige color dash.

I think the fabia comes with beige interiors not depending ion the mmodel, but the colour. The dark colours get beige interior, while the light colors get the black interior. I'm saying this coz i saw a top of the line car with black interiors.

P.S, the laura too follows such a system right??

I too heard this way.

The black interiors does seem too out-of place in such a costly car. Specially, in the indian market, where beige is generally associated with luxury cars.

yes.. interiors depend on model and exterior colour, just like the laura and octy, light interiors, dark exterior and vice-versa, except silver, which comes with an option... beige interior panels are standard on the elegance, and grey panels for the ambiente...

Maybe brilliant as you say as she was quite grimy and there was little I could do to clean her up as I had to rush off to the salt mine, so the pictures did a terrific job of not showing it all.

Thanks. She is quite muscular, and a tad difficult to manoeuvre due to the sill/bonnet/rear height that impinges line of sight. I'm 5' 10" tall so shorter drivers will have a tough time, I sense.
They call this 'Stone Grey', another nod to Czech logic...if it wasn't an Indian marketing cell that ordained it thus
