I'm using PhotoPaint in the X3 Graphics Suite and looking for a way to perhaps
perform the same function as the "Replace Color Brush Tool" without
having to drag the brush across the image. I could have sworn that there was a
way to accomplish this with a simple double-click in previous versions. Is it
just me or is this something that someone else remembers? I'm basically trying
to replace a background color (and/or range of colors) in a photo, scanned
document, etc. in a single step rather than having to drag the tool across the
image which often yields imperfect and undesirable results.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Foster! I've used theColor Replacer Filter which definitely seems to accomplish the task (with a bit of tweaking and a mask). It's been great with photos but I'm really looking for something that will instantly make the background of a B&W document white again after coming into the program looking slightly grey following a scan. I'm sure I was able to do this years ago by sampling a bit of the background with the eyedropper tool then simply double-clicking the Replace Color Brush Tool itself (I think). With some adjustment of the "tolerance" it was easy to clean up document scans this way in a jiffy.
I appreciate your quick response and will investigate the Color Replacer Filter a bit more. Perhaps it will grow on me. ;-)
How about the image adjustment lab? For B&W you could use the "select white point" eyedropper at the top of the menu. The way I understand it, that tells the application that what you select is supposed to be white and it adjusts it an the other colors accordingly.
Great suggestion. Thanks Shakespeare!
I just had the same question using PHOTO-PAINT X8. It turned out that you just have to right click anywhere on the image with the Replace Color Brush Tool, which will bring up a context menu including the entry "Replace All".
