So far, and maybe I'm using the wrong pictures but so far I haven't had too much luck with it. Some parts not taking the color, others bleeding, and the colors are too technicolor at times. Probably user error here but that's what I've done with it.

Neb, if you click on the line at the top of the two palettes (the cursor becomes a cross) and push they become "free-floating".
A double-click on the name of the palette will cause it to dock again, but it gets pretty messed up. So best leave them as floating palettes.

twinkissed, you probably need to help the program a bit. The programa can only decide how to spread the colours based on the luminosity information of the image. So, use images that have a good (luminosity) separation between the different coloured areas.
What also seems to work well is drawing a coloured line just inside the outline of the coloured area. (see attachment)
And, try using less saturated (duller) colours.


(P.S. just in case you're wondering. I do not have any connection with the author of this program)

Neb, I'm quite sure that there's nothing that you are doing wrong.
There must be some sort of incompatability in there somewhere.
I've tested this with Windows 2000 and XP, which system are you using?

You can try this, but I'm not sure that it will help much.
- exit from Recolored;
- in the folder where you saved the program find the file "Recolored.ini";
- rename this file to "xRecolored.ini";
- run Recolored again.

This will reset all the options to there initial state, but like I said, I don't actually think that this will solve your problem.

On the other hand, it seems that the only time you need the bg/fg indicator is when doing colour replacement.
Here's a workaround...When using the eye-dropper, left click will set the foreground and right click sets the background.
