You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to colorize an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
You should have GIMP open and an image ready to use. You can refer to our other tutorials to find out exactly how to do that.
If the menu is blocked by "Toolbox", just move it.
First, click "Colors" on the top-left side of the screen.
Then click "Colorize...". A dialogue box will appear where you can change the settings.
If you have a preset, then select it from the "Presets" drop-down menu.
You can save the preset by clicking the plus icon.
Then you can change the "Hue", "Saturation", and "Lightness". This can be done by dragging the scrollers, typing values in the boxes, or clicking the up and down arrows.
You can click "Reset" to reset the settings.
Click "OK" to apply the colorization to the layer.
