Avatar Re-Coloring



Well, I'm not sure if this goes here, but it's my best guess. Anyways, I'm basically wanting to just learn how to effectively recolor avatars to look like they were made that way.

I tried using the simple 'Paint' application that came with the computer, but I'm guessing it's not the best to use for this. So, anyone wanna give me some tips or maybe some advice on how to do this properly?

Thanks a bunch.

Paint will never do the job right. You'll have to use an real image-editing program for things like recoloring. You can always download a free trial of Photoshop or download the free alternative GIMP.

Haha, I figured Paint wouldn't do it. Thank you, I'll try out GIMP, seeing as it's free. So, is it difficult to change the color scheme of a simple avatar? I was going to alter the colors on this Rogue avatar a bit to make it more personalized.

Try looking for SAI editing...you can download it for free and put it into english mode...weeee.



If that is something that can be stopped, then just try and stop it.

Alright I fail at recoloring. I have that GIMP editor downloaded, but I can't edit the pictures right. I googled it, but that didn't help. I really need to learn how to do this so I don't have to mooch for recoloring jobs from people. So if anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Edit: Nevermind, I'm an ass.

Photoediting isn't for the faint of heart though. I've tried it myself... gah.

Dunno what to tell ya about the gimp.

You can select by color and then change that color though. That might do the desired effect.

But I don't know if it has some of the more easy to use features of Adobe.

Well, it sounds to me like this is no easy task, so I'll leave the learning of it for another time. A big thank you to everyone who helped.
