Colour Exchange?

Colour Exchange?

I am trying to exchange two colours. However when I used 'Colours -> Map -> Colour Exchange' and specify the 'from' and 'to' colours appropriately... the original colour does not change. e.g. I have a blue solid circle. I want to make it green (it is anti-aliased so can't use fill). The 'from' colour is set to blue (using the colour picker) and I specify a colour green. However the circle remains the original blue.

I have definitely selected the correct layer, however maybe this is the wrong tool to use? I have already looked a tutorials and the help and it doesn't seem to work for me. I'm using GIMP 2.6.11.

Any ideas how to achieve this? Thanks! Smile

RE: Colour Exchange?
Thanks ofnuts.

I couldn't get Rotate Colo(u)rs to work for what I require.

Let me explain in greater detail what I'm trying to do:
The main colour of the circle is #3db8b8 (with anti-aliased variations of this colour on the circle's edge obviously). I want to change the main colour of the circle to #008000, and still change the anti-aliasing correctly for that colour so it looks correct.

So far, Colour Exchange, Colour Rotate or Colours Hue-Saturation all fail to deliver this goal as far as I can see. Is there a way to get the specific colours I want?

Thanks in advance.
p.s. I love your spelling-agnosticism Smile

RE: Colour Exchange?
I worked it out. I used 'Colour Exchange' but had to set the Red, Green and Blue thresholds all to 1.000. The default setting of 0.000 failed to do anything useful.

The anti-aliased pixels also correctly change colours as required.

However thanks for introducing me to the Colour Rotate method, that looks good for photographs rather than for things like logos.
