So you have a image file and you want to replace a color with other (e.g. yellow with red and white blue):

You have Gimp and you don’t know how to do it. It happens sometime, especially to me.

But here it is how you can do it:

  • make sure that you image’s mode is RGB (menu Image > Mode > RGB)
  • select Color > Map > Rotate Colors
    • you have he source (From) color panel and the destination color panel (To); use those two arrows inside the color wheel and rotate them (counter) clockwise until you get the color you want

GIMP menu: Color > Map > Rotate Colors

Others examples can be found here and here and perhaps in many other places.
