Convert black to color

Go to solution Solved by Red ochre,

I am trying to give color to a black shape in an image with transparent background. I tried several things but none give satisfactory results.

- Recolor tool leaves a dark outline for some reason regardless of settings (please see image)

- The fill tool makes the shape bigger (with antialiasing enabled) or makes the edge rough (with antialiasing disabled)

- Creating a new layer on top and setting mode to "Lighten" only works when the background is white and not transparent

The only way I found is to use BoltBait's Color Balance plugin, but this doesn't let me choose an exact color.

Any ideas how I could use an exact color for this? Also, why does the recolor tool do this?

Thanks in advance
