change white object’s color

How to change the color of a white object using gimp? Unfortunately, most tutorials are not dealing with white objects but those methods have problems with colorizing white objects.

more specific: I want to change the color of a white toilet seat (compared to the white background, it looks light gray) to orange and keep all the “light elements” which make it look 3D.

Answer

Simple technique, no cutout necessary:

  1. Add a layer, bucket fill with color (somewhat darker than what you are aiming for), set to “Color” mode
  2. Select the original layer, and use Levels, dragging middle handle to the right to darken the color.
