You can easily change only the backgroundcolor or only the textcolor of images containing text (newspaper, code snippets,...). I used to: - apply a filter (hue,...) on the image, but this changed the backgroundcolor and the textcolor - or 'tried' to select the text with magical wand, change a color, having problems with color transitions from text to background. Now: 1: choose your primary color (e.g. background color newspaper) and open the effect 2: with 'make transparent', adjust your color to replace (color & tolerance slider). You can now see how far the effect will take place (= super-magical wand). 3: check 'keep color distance', select 'other color', choose your color and finetune (2&3) tip: changing the lightness/darkness of (in/output) colors in combination with changing the tolerance can do wonders
Like all effects: For some wishes, it's ideal, for some others, it's not. Your output could have been (slightly) better if you've chosen a darker output color. But I admit, your example, the large color span to replace (from almost white to a darkgreen), doesn't seem to be the ideal challenge for this effect :wink: On the other hand, this effect goes further/faster than lots of other color replacing effects I've seen so far. Like I said, it depends on what/how you use it, I guess. It can also be used to remove parts of an image, (un)like 'magic wand' + 'delete'.
This effect enables you to remove/change a color (with a tolerance) * choose a color you want to remove/change * set a tolerance for this color (0= use this exact color till 100 = all colors) * select the replacing color (transparent/primary/secondary/choose one) * keep color distance or work with a single color * apply transparency if wanted download :: OtherFarmColorReplacer . dll | src (version 1.1 :: 7 december 2008) OtherFarmColorReplacer.zip Paint.NET :: Effects >> Color >> Color Replacer publishing history: version 1.0 - 7 dec 2008 version 1.1 - 7 dec 2008 - corrected transparency (from 0-100 to 0-255) - added color distance functionality next version - 3 additional tolerance sliders for the color to change (one per RGB channel) - remove 'use transparency' checkbox (transparency slider is sufficient) OtherFarm::Paint.NET
