Color Palette

This add-on can read and write Gimp's palette format. The first thing to do is to determine your "Palettes Folder". This can be the Gimp's palette folder, or it can be a specific one for your project. Select the palette with the select menu. You can save your palette with the + button. Add as many colors as you need with the + button at the left of the index number field. Sample the current brush color with the small color wheel button. Select a palette color with the small button under the colors.

Weight Palette

Select the weight value from the eleven values. These can be adjusted with the Weight slider.
