Selective Coloring with GIMP

Hello! Today you will be learning how to simply do selective coloring on a picture in about 15 to 20 minutes where in Photoshop it takes hours and hours. So first Open GIMP up and paste your image. I will be using this image.

  1. Copy and paste the image above on your canvas. Click on Edit=>Paste into. If the canvas is bigger than your image click Image=>Autocrop Image. This will get rid of the excess canvas around the small image.
  2. Now, click on your color palette tool as shown below. And choose a color you would like to use. If you want to use a color that is something closer to one of your image's, then click on your color picker tool and click on a color on your image.
  3. Now, click on Image=>Mode=>Grayscale. Your image should now look like so:
  4. Then click on Image=>Mode=>RGB. Then click the paint brush on the right and choose your brush size. Zoom into about 800% on the image, and then color the part you wanted colored. If there are small pixels that need to be colored, go to the smallest brush.
  5. Now, all you have to do is save your image. CLick on File=>Save image as and a pop-up window like below should appear. Click on Select File Type and choose what kind of file type you like your image to be, example (GIF, JPEG and PNG). Don't forget to change the name of the file from untitled to something else.
  6. Now, here is what our image looked like!
