Fastest way to recolor with GIMP.

Postby Wesley » 17 Aug 2013, 18:48

So this will be a really quick 5 step guide to recolor your papercraft.
I'll take this image as an example:

I'll make the red spots on pikachu Orange in this tutorial.

Step 1:
Load your image in gimp.

Step 2:
Find this button in your toolbox. It is the 'Select By Color' selection tool.

If your toolbox doesnt open at startup press ctrl+b.

Step 3:
Click on the colors you want to recolor.
The section should get highlighted.

Step 3:
Click at the top: Colors -> Colorize.

Step 4:
This window should popup:

Play with the settings till you find the right color.

Step 5:
Press 'OK' when you found the correct color. Save it, print it, cut it, fold it, glue it and post an picture here!

Additional Tips & Tricks:
- Double click select by color to edit its advanced settings. I prefer to have treshold around 40-65
- Hold ctrl to remove an selection.
- Hold shift to add an selection.
- You can select with the magic wand, rectangle and other selections. Aslong as the part you want to recolor is selected you're fine :)
- To save: File -> export.


I thought why not correct the original image as the tail and the two back stripes should be brown instead of red.

Thanks for this guide :) looks and works great!

It will be a bit tricky when the textures are a bit more complex though, like these:

but there is a slider which lets you adjust how close the colors Gimp selects have to be to the color you clicked.

True. But it is only hard if some colors are being used for multiple things on your papercraft.

But if you want to recolor DK to blue (furr only) then it wont be that hard as the brown is only used for its furr.
Though this is still easier AND faster than your guide :P
If anyone needs some recolor jobs done hit me up. :thumbup:

Hello

Too many times we have taken a picture and not like a dress color, or a tree is yellowing and taking away the effect of the picture.

Не будем переиграть но... Хотел изолировать взводной ремонт холодильников , на деле критически.

Но конкретно такой большой функционал предполагает наличие в устройстве значительного списка детекторов и микросхем настройки приверженных отказам, даже опираясь на пресловутое немецкое качество. Городок Люберцы включает в себя много технологических центров обладающих внушительным ассортиментом холодильников bosch. Часто реальность раздельного наблюдения морожения реализовано при помощи 2-ух моторов работающих отдельно для отдельного сектора заморозки, хотя бывают варианты где двухэтапное прохождение фреона реализуемо за счет деления контуров под назеданием клапанов.
В жизни причина неисправности кроется в отсутствии регламента эксплуатации и разумеется платным диллером случаем. Поэтому оплачивать ремонт холодильника или, в несогласии условий диагностироваться, приезд сотрудника к клиенту, приходится пользователю из кошелька.
Для сравнения за ремонт холодильников при не истекшем сроке с пользователя ни взыщут ни чего, а за "холостой" приезд может быть потребовано около 3000 рублей.
