Making all white spaces one certain color

Recommended Posts

Try this (make sure you're using v2.5 Beta 4):

1. Open the image in question

2. If you want to replace exactly the color white (i.e., #FFFFFF), then set the Tolerance slider in the Tools box to 0%. I'm guessing this is what you want.

3. In the Colors window, set the Secondary color to your white color that you are wanting to get rid of

4. Set the Primary color to the new color that you want to replace the white pixels with

5. Select the Magic Wand tool (4th row, 1st column in Tools box)

6. Zoom in and find one of the white pixels

7. Shift-click on the pixel --- this will select all pixels of that color on the whole image

8. Now, using the Recolor tool (7th row, 2nd column in Tools box), simply paint all over the canvas. You'll probably want to make the Brush Size larger.

#8 works because all drawing in Paint.NET is clipped to the currently selected region.
