replace single pixel in 'rainbow'

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have used the 'rainbow' default style, which is wonderful, but I don't wan't the bright yellow pinpoint in the centre. I've tried various different ways to replace the pixel at the centre (10 9 100 0) with the adjacent pixel (21 7 100 0), but am getting nowhere. I have AfD and AfP and haven't found the right search terms to express my problem to find the solution, so have started a new thread. I hope you can help? 

Thank you!

Why not recreate the blocks and fill them with the color of choice with the eyedropper?

I think that what @BeccaT (the OP) has posted is a blow-up and that each block represents a single pixel. I cannot solve @BeccaT's problem, but this might help others do so.

I am going to show my ignorance here, what is a Rainbow Default Style? 

Also what program are you using, Designer or Photo? Is this something which is in both?

‘Rainbow’ is one of the styles supplied (along with ‘Sunset’, ‘Metal’, ‘Onyx’, ‘Glass’ and ‘Salmon’) in the Default category in the Styles panel in both AD and APh.

Not sure if I understand correctly your problem here (?), but when you use the pixeltool you can place a pixel of another color on that selected pixel. Afterwards you can merge the visiable layers of the initial rainbow style shape and the single placed pixel.

Note however that the above said is when using a vector shape with a rainbow style as fill. - If you instead rasterize the vector shape first, you can afterwards use the fill tool and apply directly another color onto the pixel.

Yes, the layer needs to be rasterized. One may then choose any color, and with the flood fill tool set to a tolerance of Zero, fill any pixel w. a different color.

If keeping the layer a vector w. gradient fill, adding the gaussian blur fx w. alpha protected will smear the colors, and eliminate a bright spot.

thank you so much  @John Rostron @haakoo @gdenby @v_kyr for the different options which are so helpful. For info, I used the vector with gradient fill, adding 0.1px  gaussian blur/alpha protected which achieved exactly the result I was looking for :)
