In Paint.Net, color question


Recommended Posts

I love this program, but there is one thing that I can't seem to figure out how to do. Is it possible to select a color, and have all pixels that are that color changed to transparent (Or to another color)? This would be very helpful, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do this.

Thanks Again, any help is greatly appreciated.

:)

...or, if you want similar colors, turn up the tolerance.

...and if, instead of making them transparent (as BoltBait told you how to do), you want to fill them with another color, just make your primary color the one you want to change to, and draw a filled rectangle across the entire canvas with the selection still active.

 

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.

Hit [backspace] instead.

It's the shortcut for Edit > Fill Selection.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

Yay for functions I never knew about!

Dang, I need to read up on these keyboard shortcuts...
