How to recolor sprites sheets with Gimp

on 4/26/2012, 10:19 pm
If you dont have Gimp You can download it here for free!!!!!!

http://www.gimp.org/



Here is a video version of the tutorial for those that dont like reading but I still recomend that you read the tutorial.



Step 1
Open the sprite sheet you want to recolor in Gimp

I will use Yoshi for this tutorial
Spoiler:
Step 2
Click on the "color picker tool"
Spoiler:
Step 3
Then open up another image that has the color that you want and click on the color
Spoiler:
Or you can click on the "color box" and you will get a dialog box where you can change the color without opening another image
Spoiler:
Step 4
Once you pick the color that you want the "color box's" color will change to the one you selected
Spoiler:
Step 5
Click on the "select by color tool" button
Spoiler:
Step 6
Then you click on the color that you want to replace, and you will get a dotted outline around the color on the entire sprite sheet
Spoiler:
Step 7
Right click on the color that you want to replace then go to Edit--->Fill with FG Color
Spoiler:
Step 8
Now the color for the entire sprite sheet should have been replaced with the one that was in the "color box"
Spoiler:
The only reason this tutorial is has a lot of steps is because I wanted it to be very well explained once you know how to do this it should only take a few clicks to recolor a sprite sheet.

Yea but its made via Gimp, so its better than your PS way.





If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst.
Deuteronomy 13:7-12

This is nice because Gimp is already free.

So if you don't have Fireworks, Photoshop, etc, Gimp is a good alternate. However, GraphicsGale is also pretty nice.

So will these Gimp files (xcf's) go onto Flash CS3 (the adobe I use)? If not do I need to change them into another file? Plz respond. Thanks. Very Happy

No. You have to make them PNG.

EDIT: There are a couple of other formats you could make them but PNG is arguably the best format for importing into Flash considering it handles transparency and compresses the file with very minimal loss in quality.
