Substitute Color Plug In

Recommended Posts

Hi, very new to Paint.net and exploring. I previously used the editor in Hypersnap (like Snagit) to modify my pictures and one of the very useful tools was "Substitute Color" specifically the features were:

1) Dropper or RGB for original color

2) Dropper or RGB for replacement color

3) Tolerance setting

4) Ability to specify multiple replacements at one time (tho I never used that)

5) Settings would either apply to entire image or only area that selected

6) Revert option to undo in the dialog

Is there any plug in in Paint.net that allows a user to pick original and replacement colors using the dropper? I am sure there's ways of doing this but I found this one real simple. Screenshot attached. TIA!

Try the Recolor tool: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/RecolorTool.html

Or, if you're looking for something a little more automatic, try:


Conditional Hue/Saturation plugin. It is a little tricky to learn, but very powerful.

Does the recolor tool only work with the brush setting? or can it work across the whole image automatically?

If you increase the brush size, you can recolor more of the image at once. With a large enough brush, you can recolor in one click...

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