Select the color you want to use on the palette foreground by double-clicking the foreground color on the Toolbox (in my example it is the green block). Click the gradient square as well as that gradient rectangle to get the desired color:
Click Layer and then New Layer on the top menu:
Choose Foreground Color under Layer Fill Type:
Change the Mode for the layer to Color (make sure your new color layer is selected, if you do nothing between step 4 and 5 it will be selected already):
You can print directly from GIMP or you can save it as a JPEG so you have your re-colored paper to use forever for printing at anytime you choose:
Below is the color overlay on the lighter and darker colored papers to show you the difference. Also feel free to use different Modes from step 5 for different results:
- To print click File from the top menu and then click Print. A dialog box will appear. Here select YOUR printer, if it is not already selected, and then click the Print button:
- To save a JPEG in GIMP you must use the export feature. To do this click File from the top menu and then Export. You will see a dialog box, type your new file name, select JPEG from the List and then Export. Another dialog will appear, the default setting should be fine so just click Export:
I hope this comes in handy for you! If you have any question please comment here or on this My Time Made Easy blog post.
Have a wonderful day!
This is my twin sister Nancy and her newest family member Myles. They're TV stars now so I just wanted to brag! :D Isn't she beautiful and her new son is just the BEST!
He has overcome some difficult odds and I am just so proud of him and the whole family! I love you Nancy, Muncle, Carly, Carson and Myles!
I love the idea of sending loved ones serving our country a care package wrapped in this great package. It will take some time to put this one together but it's well worth it to show your special soldier how much you care!
You may remember Joanne from long ago in tweak history
. I have worked with her several times over the years on many projects. For example an Etsy banner and a smaller, cleaner header
for her blog. Here's a fun before and after shot!
I do love that but take a look at this instead:
It's bold yet clean and I love how it turned out! Thanks to Joanne's AWESOME inspiration
we built this incredible design! Thanks Joanne, you're such a wonderful client! I always enjoy working with you!!!
Hop over and get a good look around!
