If you dont have Gimp You can download it here for free!!!!!!

http://www.gimp.org/



Here is a video version of the tutorial for those that dont like reading but I still recomend that you read the tutorial.



Step 1
Open the sprite sheet you want to recolor in Gimp

I will use Yoshi for this tutorial

Click on the "color picker tool"

Step 3
Then open up another image that has the color that you want and click on the color

Or you can click on the "color box" and you will get a dialog box where you can change the color without opening another image

Step 4
Once you pick the color that you want the "color box's" color will change to the one you selected

Step 5
Click on the "select by color tool" button

Step 6
Then you click on the color that you want to replace, and you will get a dotted outline around the color on the entire sprite sheet

Step 7
Right click on the color that you want to replace then go to Edit--->Fill with FG Color
Spoiler:
How to recolor sprites sheets with Gimp 887818Step7
Step 8
Now the color for the entire sprite sheet should have been replaced with the one that was in the "color box"

The only reason this tutorial is has a lot of steps is because I wanted it to be very well explained once you know how to do this it should only take a few clicks to recolor a sprite sheet.

This is nice because Gimp is already free.

So if you don't have Fireworks, Photoshop, etc, Gimp is a good alternate. However, GraphicsGale is also pretty nice.

No. You have to make them PNG.

EDIT: There are a couple of other formats you could make them but PNG is arguably the best format for importing into Flash considering it handles transparency and compresses the file with very minimal loss in quality.
