making a floating selection blend in
I don't know if what I am asking is allowed because I am trying to make something adult oriented...

I want to turn a dragon picture into an adult furry picture by adding a ***ina to it, I have selected the part from another photo but I want to adjust the color of the part to match the dragon's skin color... is there any easy way to do this???



and if this isn't allowed to be asked please politely let me know and feel free to delete this...

RE: making a floating selection blend in
To change a color, you can either convert to B&W (Colors/Desaturate) and then ad a new color back ("Colors/Colorize"), or paint with brush in "Hue" or "Color" mode.

For a nice blend, you use a "layer mask", and paint on it with a very soft gray brush (the more brush strokes, the more transparent the area becomes).

Ok, I figured out they layer mask but I have another issue!!!!!! it only works 1 time over!!! I cannot use more than 1 brush stroke!!! it won't work with more than 1!!! it just stays the same if I do!!!

Sorry, my mistake. Use a black brush, and set its opacity ("Opacity" slider in the Brush tool options) to something low (15-20%)). You can also use the airbrush for this.
