Thanks for your colorwash article and free code

PNG supports transparent areas, converting to JPG will lose those.

Renaming a file to represent something it is not, is insane. Renaming a file does not make it a jpg, or make a program that deals with jpgs able to use it.

This seems a little insane to me. I've not read the article, but the way I'd do a color wash is to just draw over the image with transparency so that the image shows through. This will tint the entire image. If you want greater control, you could write some image processing code that iterates over the pixels and adds color.
