I have a JPEG image that needs its colors changed before I use it in an Openoffice.org file. How do I change the colors?
When you open a JPEG file, OpenOffice.org displays the image toolbar just below the command bar. Once the file is open:
- Select: Tools > Eyedropper from the Menu bar. It will display a floating window called Eyedropper.
- Click on the uppermost top left icon, Eyedropper.
- Enter a tolerance value to define how exact the color match should be. First try a tolerance of 10%. You might need to increase it for any change to be visible. A 30% value is usually effective. You can go as high as 99%, but it may pick up more area than you want.
- Select in the image the color you want to change. In the eyedropper floating window, that color will be automatically selected.
- Choose the new color you wish to use from the Replace with... drop down list.
- Click on the Replace button to confirm your choice. If nothing happens, increase the tolerance.
- To replace more colors, select another color rectangle to the left of the Eyedropper floating window, then repeat the steps from 2 to 5. Finally, confirm your choices by clicking on the Replace button.
