    Default Can't find the colour eraser tool in Xara ProX 16

    Sorry if that's a stupid question but there is a handy colour eraser tool on my old Xara and I can't find it now.

    Used to be one of the photo tools, you click on a colour and it would go transparent.

    I searched the help file but no answers on colour eraser or colour replace.

    Thanks for any help, I really need that tool!

    Select the Photo Tool (as you already are) and there should be the Select Colours to Enhance button on the top toolbar. You may have to manually put it there if it's missing.

    Click the button > select colour you want to edit/erase > Right click to make transparent.

    You beat me to it by half an hour.

    To add to Chris's input, you can select several points to capture a range of close colours.
    There is a control box on the right to fine tune Tolerance and Fade parameters once you have picked a point.

    It is under Help > Index: Enhance photo colors (US spelling!).
