Hi Sergio, welcome to the forum.

I think you're wanting help with the Recolor Tool pdn35icons.RecoloringToolIcon.png right? If I'm correct, follow this link: http://www.getpaint....ecolorTool.html

Read the text carefully, especially the first paragraph and the piece about the recolor tool being linked to the brush width.

Try increasing the brush width and using the mouse to "paint" over the apple in broad strokes.

Paint.net 3.5? You mean 3.5.8 don't you? If you don't have 3.5.8 installed then go to the Utiilities menu & click on "Check for updates".

Hello Ego.

I mean 3.5.8. I would not paint the apple again, I need to change the color. Probably this tool is not able to do this. Of course increasing the brush I can paint the apple with a new colour but I must be careful to the margins. Best regards. Sergio

Hello Ego.

I tried the change of SATURATION and it's ok.

Anyway, thank you for your message.

Sergio

also color tint, color filter, curves, and conditional hue/satutration and there are other ways--

Hello Mountnman.

Thank you for your tip.

Best regards

I assure you it is the right tool for the job!

No, you're thinking of the recolor tool as an ordinary paint brush. It's not. Think of it as a selective brush. It will only recolor the bits that fall within the range of the Secondary color (modified by the tolerance setting in the toolbar). This means that you can be sloppy with the margins because the white background is not even close to the original color of the apple boltbait.big_smile.png

There are a few ways to do this. The recolor tool, in my opinion, just complicates things.

easy way:(only if you don't have a stem and leaf on the apple)

Step 1: open the hue/saturation adjustment window

Step 2: adjust hue slider

Other easy way:(You don't need this if you don't have a stem and leaf on the apple)

Step 1: click on link

Step 2: download pack

Step 3: install plugins

Step 4: run conditional hue/saturation adjustment at desired settings

EDIT:

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait
