Don’t like the colour of a particular image, but still want to use it? Here’s how to change (colorise) it quickly and simply.

Step 1

Open up the image in Paint Shop Pro.

Step 2

At the top of the screen, go to Colours > Colourise.

Step 3

The ‘Hue’ number changes the colour of your image, so slide it along slowly to change your image from colour to colour. The ‘Satuation’ option changes the brightness of the colour. So, if you wanted dark green for example, put ‘Hue’ onto 101 and move the ‘Saturation’ slide to about 144, which should make your colour darker.

Step 4

If you want to match a colour on an image/layout to your image, then click the colour you want on your layout/image with Dropper, click the middle of the colour box in the colour palette, and then write down the Hue and Saturation. Then, go back to step 2.

Step 5

When you’re happy with the colour of the image on the box on the right, click ‘Ok’ and save your image. Here’s my finished result:
