Colouring a scanned pdf picture
Hi,

I have scanned some hand drawn black and white pictures and saved them as PDF files. I am colouring them in using GIMP with a view to have them printed as greeting cards.

When bucket filling in areas there is an outline of 3 to 4 pixels that haven't been filled. They are a mixture of grey tones. I'm assuming this because the drawing was done using an ink pen and has then been scanned.

I'm having to use the pencil tool in GIMP to fill in the outline around each coloured area...it's incredibly time consuming. Is there any way to select pixels that are all of the same colour then change them to white? Or can anyone think of a solution?

Thank you Smile

I'm sorry but as it says in the forum announcements, this forum has been DEAD for a long time.

The spammers keep trying to take over.
