This is a neat little plug in. It samples a color and transfers it. A bit easier to use - I think - than color replacer tools etc. Anyway- a dandy little tool. Free.
It has a yearly timer on it. Some time in January each year it stops working and you have to go back to his website to re download. Not much of a hassle. You can share with people but Josh asks that you get it from the site instead .... as a courtesy.
Basically (you can use just one bmp if you want to but) open two bmps. Let's say or your photoreal and another one which might be for fall or spring (screenshot template). Call this template pic A and the bmp pic B.
In your paint program.... open up both A and B. choose select (the little marching ants square or lasso ) on pic A and select a portion of it for the basic color you are looking for. Now call up Metrix (in PSP I choose -effects- plug ins- Metrix) - make sure to click analyze and then ok. The marching ants freeze momentarily then start marching again. done. NOW - go to Pic B and choose... perhaps.... lasso with edge finder an draw around where you want to make color changes, double click to close the edge finder poly. find Metrix again and make sure you choose 'apply' this time, click ok. Wait a sec and the change is made, and done very nicely. I've used magic wand in the past but it kind of leave a mottled look and you have to mess with tolerance too much.
Give it a try. Let me know if it works in Gimp. it does work in many Photoshop versions, and PSP and the older Jasc psp. Bob
What chu doin' here when the game is about to start? My excuse is we only have Netflix right now- seeing as how we spent 99% of our tv time on Netflix and not cable so we dumped cable. Oh well.
Yeah- see if Metrix works in Gimp. If it does... wonderful. Bob (BTW- I gave better instructions on how to than Josh does. ) <--- cuz I am sooooo good- you all may kiss my ring now! Bwahahahaha. I'll take a pizza and a 6 pack and a 3 day vacation, thank yooooo! bob
