How to change the color of lines for a line chart using ggplot2 in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When we create line chart with each of the lines having different color, we might want to change the color of lines if the colors we used at the first time are not making the chart attractive. This can be done by manually setting the color of the lines in the chart with the help of scale_color_manual function.

Example

Consider the below data frame −

> set.seed(2)
> Group<-rep(c(1:5),times=4)
> Time<-rep(c("Time1","Time2"),each=)
> Frequency<-rpois(20,5)
> df<-data.frame(Group,Time,Frequency)
> df
   Group Time Frequency
 1 1 Time1  3
 2 2 Time2  6
 3 3 Time1  5
 4 4 Time2  3
 5 5 Time1  9
 6 1 Time2  9
 7 2 Time1  3
 8 3 Time2  7
 9 4 Time1  5
10 5 Time2  5
11 1 Time1  5
12 2 Time2  3
13 3 Time1  6
14 4 Time2  3
15 5 Time1  4
16 1 Time2  7
17 2 Time1 10
18 3 Time2  3
19 4 Time1  5
20 5 Time2  2
> library(ggplot2)
> ggplot(df,aes(x=Group,y=Frequency,colour=Time))+
+ geom_line()

Output

Changing the color of the lines to Green and Black −

> ggplot(df,aes(x=Group,y=Frequency,colour=Time))+
+ geom_line()+
+ scale_color_manual(values=c("Green","Black"))

Output
