recoloring an image to palette
I have a picture of 200 or so colors. I can create a palette of it by going to indexed mode. No problem there.

My problem is when I load a different image, and if I try to recolor it to this new palette, GIMP is choosing the new colors according to the luminosity values, not what the colors actually look like.

Is there a plug-in or something that makes GIMP choose the closest-looking color?

RE: recoloring an image to palette
Hmm.... I found this script for palette conversions with an addtional link above the script.

http://registry.gimp.org/node/10325

It requires python but if you have 2.8.6 you should be able to just put the script file (name.py) in your script folder (importing py scripts worked for me)

How to install gimp scripts & plugins:

I hope this is one step in the right direction.

RE: recoloring an image to palette
I always thought the closest looking color is the color that looks the closest.

Is there anything that picks a color closest to the RGB value?
