[RMVX ACE] HOW TO RECOLOR SPRITES?

How would you go about recoloring a sprite to a different color a more easier way? I know there is an easy way.

I asked this same question many years ago but I can't find my old post.

I assume by "easy way" you refer to brute-forcing a hue change.

You can do this with any image designing software like Photoshop, Fireworks, GIMP, or others. You can just adjust the hue of the image to recolor it entirely.

What I'd personally do is use the Wand or Selection tool (available in all software like the ones mentioned above) to separate each element of the sprite in various layers, and THEN change the hue of specific parts, like clothing or accessories, or Eyeballs! This way I'm not changing the entire sprite and i don't get unwanted results. Like technicolor skin.

It’s your actions.. not your strength, that would lead you to victory.

In Gimp go to colors and select colorize.
You can get stuff to look a variety of colors, even black and white.
I just installed gimp. This should be way easier.
