making a game
Hi! I'm making a browser game, with simple graphics drawn in the GIMP. and hit a problem with the GIMP fill tool.

Imagine I have a black circle (in outline, on white). I use the fill tool to fill the circle with red. When the fill tool finds an off-white pixel, it either fills it totally or not at all, depending on the threshold setting. So the red either eats into the outline (only the purest black pixels remain, looking narrow and jagged) or leaves a white-ish outline.

Is there any way to fill the circle so that off-white pixels are tinted instead or replaced? So that the red fades into black? I know the best solution is not to create the image that way in the first place. But I am editing existing images. I wish I could just click "fill" and have a nice result. Any suggestions?
