Skin Colouring

Recommended Posts



This is a small part of a picture of two of my children when they were younger. It was B&W originally, and I ran it through one of the online converters. It basically did a good job, except for some skin tones, and part of my son's trousers and pullover arm. Any ideas on how I can sort the colours out?


Many thanks,

You are right, Pixey, thank you, although I am all fingers and thumbs today. Don't seem able to get near your result!


Any pointers? I have printed out the relevant pages to try and understand the sequences

What I did was:


1.  With the Paint.net color picker :ColorPickerTool: click on the sweater color - left click of mouse.  It will pick the primary color.

2. Switch over to to the recolor tool :RecoloringTool: and then just paint over the area you want right on the picture.  You can increase the brush width  the top tool bar.
