First get some tones
extract them to a new folder *somewhere u will remember*
-extract to....*what ever the name of the screentones name is*
this creates an automatic folder for the tones when it extracts
open the folder and minimize it
then go to
My computer> Local disk (c:) > Program Files>Gimp 2.0 folder *or whatever version u have*>share>gimp>2.0> patterns
*minimize this folder too*
now maximize the folder with the screentones
-drag over all the screentones
- then click and drag them into the gimp patterns fold
one last step to do so your screentones won't look all werid
- open Gimp *if it isn't already*
- go to the "clone" tool
-changed it to "pattern" if it isn't already like that
and under "alignment" change it to "Aligned"
select a screentone from the list beside "pattern" or
you can go to *from your image window* Dialouges>Patterns
and now your ready to screentones
-get an image
-If your image has a white background or a single colored background to get rid of it go to "filters">"colors">"alpha colors" and press okay
-If your background color isn't white select the bar select the background with a dropper tool from the image then press okay and then press okay again.
There are 2 ways to select a new layer:
-Select the new layer button at the bottom of the layers tab
-or near the top left select the arrow then "layer menu" > then "new layer"
-name your layer "white back">then select "white" then okay
-grab the line-art layer and put it in front of "white back" layer
-By doing all of this you have now prepared your line-art for coloring. Instead of your image being colored over its under making it a lot easier.
