Replace Colour But Retain Shading


Recommended Posts

Change the hue using the "hue and saturation" adjustment

OR

If you only want to change one color at a time, use the "Conditional Hue/Saturation" adjustment plugin

Ok, in fact it' s something quite easy. Just follow what I did:

Let' s say I' ve got a red to blue linear gradient :LinearClampedGradient: and I want to replace the blue part by green.

1st: select all (ctrl+A) and copy it (ctrl+C)

then with the recoloring tool :RecoloringTool: set at 50%, and the green you want as the primary color and the blue as the secondary color, just pass over all the image.

With the magic wand tool :MagicWandTool: set at 50%, click somewhere in the red part and hit delete.

On a new layer :AddNewLayer: under the first one, paste (ctrl+V) what you' ve copied before.

Then on the first layer, apply a blur :BlurEffect: of 200 (that' s what I did but you can do it with less)

Then it' s finished. Hope I helped you. :smile:

I downloaded "EOEffects.dll" but after relaunching Paint.net I did not see "Conditional Hue/Saturation" in any of the drop-down menus.

it's in the adjustments menu (in case you hadn't found it)

Always happy to help! :)
