Different photos, same colors
Hi there,
I'm frarobertooo, a creative without a cause Smile I lurked this forum few times and now I have a question for the community. I would like to make a collage of different photos over a common background: just to fix an idea, I'll trying to put new photographed customers in Edward Hopper's Nighthawks bar. My main problem is I don't know how to use the paint palette also for the new customers.
Have you got any hint for that?
Molte grazie,

RE: Different photos, same colors
The easiest way to import hues is to set the foreground color to the color you want (use the color picker if needed), and then paint over your target after putting the paint tool (brush, pen, airbrush... in "hue" mode (pretty much at the bottom of the list). This way changes in saturation and lightness (that are really coming from differences in lighting) are kept and your target keeps a natural look. There is also a "color" mode that carries over hue and saturation if my memory is good.

If you are handy and have a tablet you can paint directly. Otherwise putting the selection over the area to paint will avoid spills (you can then use bucket-fill...)

Now answering your questions on

That's an excellent answer Ofnuts Smile
I was hoping that there was an automatic feature but this will work well (also because I have a tablet).
Thank you!
