how do i use the recolor tool

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new to paint.net.

I'm trying to use the recolor tool on a bitmap image (of a form), selected primary color, secondary color (to be replaced), selected the recolor tool, left click on image and nothing happens - any suggestions?

I have also a hard time figuring out what the purpose of this tool is :oops: - ie. one might as well just use a brush and then pick a new color from the palette, however, i can see that it is possible to transform the re-color tool into the color picker tool, which saves a few selections in the toolbox (read: less clicking on the mouse), so i'll guess it's just a matter of getting used to using the tool.

btw, I think you made a good short explanation on how to use the tool :)

Here's something for you to test so you can better understand this tool.

Keep primary color Black & secondary color white.

On a white background type some black colored texts.

Select recolor tool.

Right click on black colored texts.

See what happens.

I have been fighting with the 'recolor' tool for a long time.

I just found the above exercise and tried it. I doesn't work for me. No change. Left button or right button.

If I hold the left button and drag it, I get a black line.

The 'help' page for Recolor is worthless.....

Thank you for your input, Techineer, but don't forget the Rules (in this case, [rule=11]Rule #11[/rule]).

I believe I've responded to you in the other topic you posted in.
