16 color palette conversion

Postby cedfoo7 » Sun Apr 12, 2015 11:38 am

I have a very small 8x8 px image with exactly 3 colors.
When I convert this image to an 8-bit palette everything works fine (the first 3 palette entries are the used colors -- the rest are black). However, when I try to convert this to a 4-bit palette, the colors change -- it seems as if the palette becomes a gray-scale gradient, and then the image colors are matched to the nearest entry, as opposed to generating the palette from the image.

Thanks!

For some reason, if the image contains only shades of gray, then NeoPaint will use the standard 4-bit gray-scale palette, which isn't what you want. If the image contains even a single pixel of color, then NeoPaint will generate the correct image-based palette during the conversion.

I will add this to our list of things to correct in the next update. In the mean time, maybe a workaround would be to add a single pixel of color to the image before converting to 4-bit. You could then edit the palette and remove the color if needed. Alternatively, you could use the palette editor to create a custom 4-bit palette and select that in the conversion dialog.
