Changing color of a vertical line

Recommended Posts

I have a jpg image that represents a vertical line.

Size: 1 x 1104 Pixels
Resolution: 96 DPI

As you see, it is quite thin to actually see it in Paint.NET editor. I need to change its color.



- How could I do it in a comfortable way? It is very difficult to manage that image in order to put color.


- Is it possible to put in color in different tones? Start with a blue dark, then in the middle not so dark, and at the end a low blue.

Use the color wheel to choose your two colors of blue.

Choose the Gradient tool, then choose  :LinearReflectedGradient: on the tool bar.
Draw your gradient from the middle to the bottom by holding down the shift key.
If the colors come out backwards, just click the :Swap: button near the color wheel.

Click the finish button.

The gradient tool doesn't require you actually click on a pixel in the image, so you should be fine there. If you need to do any more detailed work, you can always zoom (ctrl+scroll wheel or ctrl++/ctrl+- or the slider in the bottom right corner)

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