colour palettes


Recommended Posts

i have just purchased the ebook for Paint.Net ..it tells me that there are countless colour pallets  eg night sky & they are to be found in the Forum...beats me ..i can't find anything remotely like that.

 

forgive me if this is again in the wrong section - but you can't ask a question in forum

I don't think I said "countless"  :)  Numerous - certainly ;)

Since someone just asked me about this in a PM...

How to install the palette file:

1. Open Paint.NET

2. Expand the Color Docker by clicking "more" button:

3. Click the palette button:

palettesmenu.png

4. Select "Open palettes folder..."

This will open a standard windows explorer window.

5. Find my palette file and right-click on it and choose "copy" from the context menu.

6. Go to the window that opened in step 4. Choose Edit > Paste from the menu.

7. Close that window.

8. Click the Palette button in the color docker window (like in step 3) and notice that your new palette file is listed at the top of that menu. Select the new palette entry to view the palette.

9. That's it.

i did that 'open pallets file' & there is nothing in it!!!

That's because you haven't put a palette file in the folder yet. 

 

Steps 1-4 tell you how to open the correct folder - you need to copy one of the palette files into that folder for it to show up in paint.net. 

 

If you want to download a zipped palette from the palette thread, do so then unzip it and copy the *.txt file to the palettes folder.

@ftlog, please do not quote spam. It makes it harder to eradicate. Thanks :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
