I have a set of icons which are a specific color (blue) with white text on them. I want to change them to be a different color (turquoise) and a fair bit darker, but I want the text to remain white. When I use Colors -> Hue-Saturation, I can get the desired color I want, but the text ends up looking grey because I need to bring down the lightness slider to achieve the color I want. Is there a better way to accomplish the task I need without affecting the white?
- make sure you have an alpha channel - use Colors/Color to alpha to make the white completely transparent- insert a white layer below: you now have the same icon but split on two layers
- select the layer with the remaining blue icon- at top of the layer list, check the alpha-lock box:painting on the layer will not change the transparency of the pixels. - paint that layer in any color you wish (you can even bucket-fill the whole layer)
It's really simpler than it looks, and the result will be about perfect.See <http://gimpforums.com/thread-proper-subject-extraction-background-removal-and-background-painting> for an explanation of the magic.
