How to change color of items in PNG?


Recommended Posts

Thanks. I don't understand how to use the Recolor feature.

 

After selecting an area with the Rectangle Select tool, I expected that left-clicking on any black pixel would redraw all the black pixels with the foreground color, but it only does it with the selected pixel.

 

The goal is to change the color of a whole letter in one go.

Thanks, this worked:

 

So, unlike what I expected, Paint.net itself — there might be a plug-in for that — can not simply change the color of all pixels in one go after 1) selecting primary/seconday colors and 2) selecting the part with the Select tool: Brushing is the only way to do this.

 

Thank you.

There are many plugins which can do what you wish. All have their uses and each behaves a little differently.

 

Without a plugin, the Recolor Tool :RecoloringTool: is usually the best bet when the Fill tool :PaintBucket: is not applicable (usually because there are many separate elements or shades to recolor).

 

You can also change an entire selection to the Primary color (hit Backspace after selecting), or the Secondary color (Shift + Backspace). This technique does not respect shading the way the Recolor Tool does.

Two that I use most often are @Red ochre's Recolour Choice and @silverhammer's Advanced Recoloring, the latter with a simpler UI.
