so, I have scanned a traditional drawing into gimp and am colouring it in Smile

my problem: i did the otlines in blue, but i want them black now, so they stand out more.

what I did: I used colour select to select all the lines HOWEVER it wouldnt fill the whole line in beacuse, being a scan, the ink had sections of different colour.

what i did next: fuzzy select the background, filled it in black, inverted selection, deleted line and was going to fill in blue or something so I now have it one colour...

but because the line is thin, it is made up of some areas which are seperatied from the main selection. therefore, I have about 100000 sections to fill in, some as tiny as a pixel :O
