Working on an extracted image
Hello Gimp world.

I am working on an extracted image that contains a logo and a transparent background. I cannot figure out how to change the background of the extracted image leaving the logo with the same colour. I will also like to learn how to change the colour of the logo.

Thanks for your help. This is all new to me.

Open the layers dialog (Ctrl-L), create a new dialog, drag it to bottom of stack, make sure it is selected, and bucket-paint it.

To change the logo color, select the logo layer in the layers dialog, then right click and click "Alpha to selection". You should see the "marching ants" around your logo. Paint with any tools (bucket, gradient...), painting will be restricted to the selected area so you cannot spill paint Smile

Thanks ofnuts for your response. Perhaps I did not explain the image properly. I have attached it. It's a picture with a logo on it and I would like to colour the tank and logo in different colours. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
