Color Repaceing in The Gimp


I used the lasso took to select the area I want to mess around with. Now
hoe can I replace a color in there with something else? The other problem
I have is that I have to be able to choose the color from another area of
the image - I know how to do that with the eye dropper tool. I can choose
the color with the eyedropper,so that its in the box ont he right (I can
swap the two if I want to but that doesn't come into play here - I don't
think). I can't quite figure it out.

Can't you just use paint bucket to fill the area?

It spills allover the place.

If you want to replace a colour in the selection (in Gimp 2.2), you should use the 'Color Exchange' filter, under 'Filters -> Colors -> Map -> Color Exchange'.

Unfortunately, I don't think there's any way to 'eye-dropper' the TO and FROM colours, but if you select the colour as the foreground, you can just copy the color settings (using the hex entry would be easiest) across to the filter. You can also set thresholds for the 3 colour channels to make it less picky about the source colour.

Since you mentioned texture, if what you really want to do is actually keep texture and just change the overall colour of something, you could try using the 'Colorify' filter, or the Hue/Saturation tool.

Hope that helps.
