ulis, 2003-08-22: A little proc to adapt a gray image with transparency to a colored background.



The proc edit

proc colorize {image color} {
    # get image sizes
    set width  [image width  $image]
    set height [image height $image]
    # get color's R G B
    lassign [winfo rgb . $color] rr gg bb
    # compute new colors
    set colors {}
    for {set y 0} {$y < $height} {incr y} {
        set row {}
        for {set x 0} {$x < $width} {incr x} {
            # save transparency
            lappend trans $x $y [$image transparency get $x $y]
            # compute the new color
            lassign [$image get $x $y] r g b
            set r [expr {round($r * $rr / 256)}]
            set g [expr {round($g * $gg / 256)}]
            set b [expr {round($b * $bb / 256)}]
            # append to the current row
            lappend row [format #%4.4x%4.4x%4.4x $r $g $b]
        # append the row
        lappend colors $row
    # set new image
    img put $colors
    # restore transparency
    foreach {x y t} $trans {
        $image transparency set $x $y $t
