Count colors used?
There's really only one, well, one-and-a-half features that I still miss since I move from PaintShop to Gimp.

Count colors used.

It was a simple command in the color menu that would tell me how many unique colors were in the image I was working with. I clicked it and I got a dialogue box that told me.

Is there any feature like that in Gimp that I simply never found? Or is there a plug-in or something that I can add to give me this functionality?

Another feature I only kinda miss was an extended way to reduce colors. In Gimp I'm wither working in RBG (full color) or indexed, which is 256 colors. (And greyscale which is just a form of indexed.) But in Paintshop I recall being able to reduce the color count to larger numbers, like 1k and 4k and 10k or the like. I never actually found a practical use for this feature, so I only half-miss it. But even so, I might as well ask about it as well. Is there any way to add that functionality into GIMP?

RE: Count colors used?
as usual Ofnuts has ninja'd me

I have to confess if I want to (easily) reduce the number of colours I head for XnViewMP.
The number of colours
Colors -> Info -> ColorCube Analysis.

Reduce the number of colours
Tools -> GEGL Opereation -> Color Reduction

I don't seem to have color reduction in my copy.

But thank you for the reply!
