Can't import .pal file
I am using Gimp 2.8, but when I try to import a .pal file, I get a message that says "unknown type of palette file." What's going on?

They aren't GIMP palettes- do they need to be? I thought GIMP could open any .pal files.

But it seems the .PAL extension is also used by various image editing softwares for their own palette files (see http://www.modcrafters.com/wiki/index.ph...te_files), so your .PAL may be a type unknown to Gimp. See the aforementioned web page for criteria to identify these various formats.


Hmmm... that link isn't working for me. It sounds like what I'd need though.
