Changing color in a texture
Hi,

I'd like to change the picture here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Friend..._Koala.JPG

So that the fur of the animal looks purple/mauve (in particular the gray part, it would be best if the white part didn't change).

I haven't found a way to do this, even approximately (which would be enough), in a textured surface. Methods I've seen changing the hue saturation seem to work when working with primary colors, but I can't get it to work with a gray color.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Raph

Thank you! I managed to obtain a fairly decent result with the way you suggested: Image

Maybe I did. I'm using a french locale, so I had to figure out which one it was. I'll try with other options.
