Help with House Painting
Hi, we've purchased a large two story villa to restore and we need to paint it urgently. We want to go with something different than the standard white so I decided to mock it up in gimp to give us an idea of how various colour schemes would look.
I've created masks for the various parts of the building (main walls, highlights, roof, windows).

I've been using an older version of gimp with hue, saturation and lightness and it seemed to be ok, but I've upgraded to the new version of gimp and things have gone awry. We now have Chroma instead and the new system seems to work quite differently than the old one with totally different colours appearing in the shadowed parts of the house.

Does anyone have any ideas on a better gimp tool I could use for changing the colours of my selected regions in a controllable way without loosing the lighting and texture?
