I do not fully (or even unfully) understand alpha layers, but I bet
there's an answer in there somewhere for this.
I have a white background with black text. I do not have the exact same
font, but I want to change the text to blue. If I select by color and
remove the white and paint with blue, it loses all the dithering and
makes nice big splotchy letters. Can this be done so the leeters look
as they did when black execpt blue?
