changing background colour

Recommended Posts

I transcribe church registers, due to the poor copies I need to change the background colour as this improves the writing for me to read and transcribe correctly. When I used PSP8 which I am unable to use now I was able to change the colour by using the dropper. I am new to Paint Net and cannot see how to do this could anybody help please.

The dropper is used to pick up a color for use elsewhere; you're probably looking for the flood fill ("Paint Bucket") tool.  It looks like this:  :PaintBucket:


Choose your color, make sure that it's set to "Global" at the top of the screen, and then click on the background.  Let me know if that helps!


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
