converting images to shade of green
Hi all,

I have a series of images that I want to all look as if I'm viewing them through coloured glasses. I have a particular shade of green in mind.. so I have the colour hex code.

How do I do it?

RE: converting images to shade of green
Method 1:
- Add a layer
- Fill with glass color
- Set to Normal (may require adding contrast later), Overlay or grain merge mode
- Adjust opacity...

Method 2:
- Colors/Colorify (if you don't want any of the original colors, you can use "Colors/Desaturate" first

Method 2A:
- duplicate layer
- colorify top layer
- adjust opacity

In all cases you'll still have a very hard time predicting the final colors...

RE: converting images to shade of green
Actually.. stuck on something. when I add a layer to an image with a transparent background, then the resulting look is a greenish background around the image, when what I really want is just the image to go more of a transparent green. This is for method 1.

RE: converting images to shade of green
- Select image layer
- Layer/Transparency/Alpha to selection (makes a seleciton that covers the non-trsnaprent parts)
- Select/Inverst (selects the transparent part)
- Select green layer
- [delete] (erase the bits above the transparent parts of the image)
