I'm trying to edit some graphics from a DS game and so far I didn't have any problems if the graphics are in GBA 4bpp mode. But when it comes to GBA 8bpp mode, I have no idea how to pick the right color and make the same color effects as the original. Like in the picture below. The bottom one is the original and you can see different shades of green in the text, but when I edited it (I used GIMP's text tool) I could only pick one color for my English text. Is there any programs or techniques to put more shades in the text? I'm such a newbie for both rom hacking and graphic editing, so detailed explanation will be much appreciated. Thank you so much. EDITED: Problem solved. The actual cause of my problem was that I set the Image Mode as "Indexed" instead of "RGB". That was why my text never showed anti-aliasing effects that way I want. Now that I changed it to "RGB" mode, everything works just fine. P.S. If anyone has this same problem, you can set image mode at "Image" menu and then select "Mode", set it to "RGB". (Same procedure in both GIMP and Photoshop.) Then use Anti-Alias when you select the Text tool.
