Colour Replace

To see the printer friendly version of this tutorial, click HERE

This is a very good tool with lot's of uses, I'm going to show you just one way I use it.

I've included screenshots for PSP versions 7 and 8 as the basic tutorial is the same for both versions.

I had a sig tag that had a coloured background on it, I wanted the background to be white so I could use it on MSN groups message boards so I used the colour replace to change the colour of the background.

You can use this image to practice on. Right click on the image and choose Save As. Save to a folder on your hard drive

Open your image in PSP

Click on the Dropper Tool  and click on the colour you want to replace. The colour will go into your top stroke box

PSP 7

PSP 8

 

In your bottom stroke box choose the colour you want your background to be then click on the little arrow to change them around

PSP 8

 

Now click on the Colour Replace Tool

PP 8

 

On your Tool Options palette use the following settings

PSP 8

 

Now paint the background on your picture. You don't have to worry about going over the image because the tool will only change the colour that is in your bottom styles box

 

This not only works with solid colour, you can use a pattern

 or gradient too.

You might have to change the tolerance settings depending on what colour you want to change the background too. The best way to learn is to have a play :o)

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
