Change an Object's Color. Short Youtube Tutorial.

Recommended Posts

I found this old, but simple, recoloring tutorial on youtube and liked it.

This short tutorial will show you how to recolor an object using Layers, the Black and White Adjustment, the Fill Tool, the Overlay Blending Mode, and the Eraser Tool.
(Note: You can learn about paint.net's layers, adjustments, and tools by viewing the documentation http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/.)

Interesting. Never though of that. Using the eraser, that's pretty straightforward.

 

I personally use the brush and color bucket tools on my recoloring jobs on an overlay or multiply layer.

That video has an old version of Paint.NET.

 

We have an advantage now because we could use soft eraser and soft brush.

 

However that method isn't best used if you need to recolor different objects with different colors.

 

I wish we had more layer blending modes though and I remember you mentioning you used Blend Modes plugin before which still could not mimic the Photoshop counterparts.
