Getting/saving a color palette from indexed GIF
I have a great picture of Jet Jaguar. I'm interested in pixel art, so I reduced the colors to an indexed 16 colors. I am quite pleased with the result:
   
I want to save the 16 colors in this pic to a palette for later, but how?

I've been looking in vain through the menus for a way to save this colormap as a palette. Maybe there's a script or plugin somewhere, but it is hard for me to believe there isn't a built-in way to do this.

Works great! Thanks!

(I'm trying to find the ultimate 16 or 32 color palette to pretty much map any picture to.)
