If you have .net framework you can get Paint.Net here

http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/

If you do not have .net framework the download is outside 15MB (26.4)

It has a magic wand which highlights the same colour in an image then you select a colour and use the paint bucket to change

That is a good program (I have had if for a week) but when that is done the I lose the shadeing of the picture. You see one side of the pictures is lighter than other and I want to keep that effect. The reason that I don't what it to big is that is would slow down the internet conection.

You could try the free trial of photoshop cs, its the daddy of the photo editing but at $650 its rather expensive to buy.

Sure I would love to have photoshop but is is a very big download for such a short period of time. I downloaded GIMP 2 ad an trying to work out how to ues it. when I do the bucket spilling thing it gives the right effect but changes the picture to the wrong colour :tazz: so if i can work that one out it will do the job (and a lof of other realy nice things).
