    Color Change

    I am trying to revamp two images for use on a website. Currently whenever I try to change the color it changes it to nothing but brown. I'd like to change it to a darker red color but am having difficulty. I'm attaching the two images. Would a kind soul look at these and explain what might be happening. Thank you so much. I'm using GIMP as my image editor.

    Are you using it as CMYK or RGB?

    Open the gif up in IrfanView or similar < increase the colour depth to 16.7 million colours (24 BPP) < edit it in your usual image editor

    Hope this helps

    you have problem using gimp, try this:

    in gimp you change the color from the panel by changing background/forground color.

    best regards
