Source/GIMP normal map color correction

However you may want to fine tune the result since GIMP considers RGB color #7f7fff to be flat, while the Source engine considers #8080ff to be flat. This means that you will have to increase every pixel in your image by 1 unit red and 1 unit green. TODO: How on earth do you do that? Is there some way to adjust the standard flat color?

I believe the correct method is now listed. However if somebody will double-check this for me I would appreciate it. I'm currently at work and may not have the ability to test this procedure anytime soon. If nobody else does, I'll get to it eventually. Thanks. Hectate 12:59, 9 Nov 2007 (PST)
