[Suggestion] Improvements on the Change Color Depth action

Post by sd_snatcher » Sun Dec 31, 2017 2:01 pm

Here goes some suggestions for improvements in the Change Color Depth action:
  • Add more color depths: 2 colors and 4 colors
  • Add positioned dithering
  • Add an option to sort the palette by Hue and Lightness. The colors would be sorted like this:
    • First, sorted by the higher 4 bits of the Hue, in ascending order. That creates groups of colors
    • Then, sort each group by lightness, in ascending order

You're right. I missed that "Bayer" = "ordered". Sorry for that.

I have another suggestion for the Change Color Depth action:

- Use a GIMP .gpl palette file for the palette. (note: the color order of the .gpl file must be preserved, and unused colors shouldn't be eliminated)
