Using GIMP 2.10.32 (revision 1) I’m trying to convert a color image to a monochrome (not black & white or greyscale).
The closest tutorial I’ve found to what I’m looking for:
describes the process for Gimp 2.8.22 (or 2.10) standard and with the default settings – Windows 10 as:
- Colors, desaturate, lightness.
- Foreground color, color palette, choose color.
- New layer icon, default transparency, drag color from foreground to image, change mode of layer to color.
(Description goes on to describe means of altering lightness/darkness etc.)
However in GIMP 2.10.32 (revision 1) there’s no “Color” option in step 3. “change mode of layer”, there are options like “HSL Colour” & “LCh Color” but these do not match the results in the video.
Ideally I want a monochrome image in which every black to the lightest grey is one color - the black being the chosen foreground color & all greys before becoming white lighter shades of this colour & the white itself remaining white.
I know stencilling is a potential option of achieving something like this effect but it won’t include any shades it will just be one shade of a specific color + white.
Can anyone suggest a method as simple as the video tutorial to achieve this effect in GIMP 2.10.32 (revision 1)?
