what dithering options did you set?

there are many ways. i usually select by color and then change paint over
it with brush set to hue or color or use a fill if i want to chage all of
it. sometimes its good to do this on a seperate layer to help you clean up
certain details so its not so obvious. (that way, for example, the
specular highlights can still be white)
