.gif help
I need help editing this .gif file. Whenever I try to paint/fill anything in it the colour changes from the one I selecte to pink or black. I've tried in many ways to fix it but it keeps changing the colour.

RE: .gif help
exactly the same as Ofnuts post but with a screenshot.
---------------
That is because a gif image is indexed and uses a limited number of colours.

With the gif image open

Go to Windows -> Dockable dialogs -> colour map and select it.

The colour map only works for indexed images and shows which colours are available. You might only have 2 as this image or you might have more. Any other colour will not work.

To paint in other colours go to Image -> Mode -> and select RGB.

When finished if you export to a gif file a new color map will be created. This can have side effects, if possible export to a png file.
