Does anyone know how I can create icons like these using Gimp?
Hello, I want to develop web-icons such as this one for a website I am working on. However I do not know how to achieve this using gimp.

   

What I did is download a set of free icon image from the Internet. I thought they where perfect for me since they where black and white and therefore I reasoned that it would be easy to change them from one colour to another (the license of these icons permits this).

   

However so far I did not manage to achieve this. The problem is that it is ok for me to change the black to some colour and the white area to some other colour. However the shadows between the black and white areas are not changing and I finish with a result similar to this Sad

   

(Can you see the black dots Sad the shadows coming from the previous dark colours are not converted to shadows coming from light blue colour. This happens even when I use the colourify option).

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? and maybe guide me on how I can develop better icons of this style?
