Selective coloring question

So, the tutorials around here have gotten me thoroughly intrigued by selective coloring. However, I am merely a Gimp user, bereft of proper piracy. I tried answering this question myself, but according to the Internets selective coloring is that tacky thing you to to make someone's lips red in a black and white picture.

So... how does a Gimp user do selective coloring? I want to play with insanely complicated color settings too. D:

Icon Tutorial #8 feat. access

Program: Photoshop CS
Steps: 6
Translatable: No
PSD: Yeah
It works best with nice, simple images that don't have too much detail and that have yellows, greens and reds but This coloring isn't good with icons with a lot of reds (like backgrounds)

[Mod Post] Presenting... your mod staff!

Hey gang,

A quick housekeeping note:

1.) I've been going through the membership roster and removing all of the deleted journals. So if it looks to you like our membership has dropped by a few hundred, that's because it has.

2.) aquamarcia and yueni have had their mod status restored. In addition, I would like to introduce you all to the newest member of the mod team, antigoneschase! Be nice for the first week or two... all 28,000 of you can be an unruly bunch and it's a lot to take in at once. ;)

3.) Speaking of restored status, just this morning we got access to the mod queue where yesterday's posts went during the hack. Since something like 10/12 of them were either against the rules or warnings about the hack (and thanks for trying, guys), pretty much all of them were rejected. If yours got swept up in the rejection and shouldn't have been, post again.


[Mod Post] Thank you!

I just wanted to poke my head in here briefly to apologize for the recent hack, and to thank those of you who messaged me for your thoughts and concern for the community. Thankfully the LJ Abuse team was able to work their magic quickly and my account is back up and running (and obviously, so is icon_tutorial.

anime/manga coloring? texture question.

i've recently stumbled back into the animanga fandom and was wondering if anyone had any tutorials they'd like to recommend.

+how to color black and white scans
+how to enhance the color on a colored page
+how to enhance the color on an anime screencap
+and anything else you deem worthy

i have no particular coloring i'm after so that's why i'm hoping for some recommendations
--hope this is not too general that it breaks the rules ^^;

also, is there a texture that results in a white outline/border/background behind an image? i've been wondering about this for the longest time. is it textures or a specific technique? either way, please enlighten me.
