GIMP Version: 2.8.10
Operating System: Windows
OS Version: 7
GIMP Experience: Basic Level



I am trying to change the image to a different color but what happens is it gets a bit pixelated because of the outer pixels as shown in the attachment.

I am not sure how to make it look smooth.

I am sure it could be a simple job for more advanced users.

Can you post your xcf so we can look at what you did so far? That way we can see the layer or layers.

That is the original .png

There is no .xcf as I am trying to edit the image and change the color. I've realised after removing the lines and using the fuzzy select tool to select the heart, If I then apply the color I want with a low opacity it looks OK (not perfect but might do)

Are you not editing the image with Gimp?

lock the alpha channel before painting/filling to preserve the semi transparent pixels.

What about using Colors/Colorize or Colors/Colorify?
