    Default Help creating a path

    I wish to change the color of a simple graphics file (attached) that I have imported into XARA. I want to change the blue to another color. I know this is a simple thing to do, but I have forgotten the specific steps to accomplish this using XARA. Thanks for anyone's assistance.

    So many ways.

    My preference is to manually Trace, which converts an image to a vector.
    You can then easily colour and tweak.

    You could use the Xara Bitmap tracer.

    Depending on your product, you may have Colour select/erase.
    Just click on the White to make it go away.
    I then click the No Colour first.
    After that, you can drag a colour onto the Blue.

    You can probably achieve similar by right-clicking the Colour on the Bar and picking a Contone.

    You can use the Photo Tool to Select Colours to enhance and change the Hue or other options.

    Thanks for the quick reply. After I sent the message I remembered where the path tool was. Worked perfectly and I recolored the object without a problem. I am returning to using XARA and just upgraded from version 9 to version 19. Can't beat the simplicity and robustness of the software, and at a great price, too!
